    Dear all,

    I do not know if I am in the right place but let me explain my scenario.
    We have build a content management system for our product using ASP.net, MVC and Razor.

    All is workign fine.

    In addition to that we have provided a set of Web services in order to be able to access to content from any client application, like Desktop app, mobile app...

    Lets take the exempla of a WPF desktop app. When the application start it sycn CMS content to a local sqlite db

    What I am trying to accomplish now is to improve the sycn process in the following way :

    - If I am connecting to the web CMS, I need to be able to see from a page all connected devices status with their Ip adresse and PC name
    - If I made a modification on the CMS, I would like to be able to selected a connected device, and send an iformation in order to ask the app to sycn right away. A kind of Sync force process

    To reach that scenario, I need to acomplish follwoing task :

    1 - Find a way to be able to kow from web site when a device is alive and connected
    2 - Be able to send a Force sync message to a specific device

    What is the proper way and technology to use to perform those operation ?

    Thnaks for help
