Connecting between two remote instances of Visual Studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a way or nay suggestions as to how to communicate directly between 2 instances of Visual Studio running on different computers?

    The idea would be that I want to send something to someone elses instance of VS and it does it directly. It would need to connect to the other computer, which would be running VS at the time, then send the data over. 

    If the IP address or an OWin service is known would there be a problem with doing this from an extension?

    Thanks

    We could use TcpClient and TcpListener classes to communicate  with each other in Visual Studio Extension.

    Could you provide more information about it? I am sorry for not undertanding your question.

    Best Regards,
