  • Hi,

    1. Define the transfer protocol between the client and the server, and then communicate with each other through the Socket.
    2. Another way is to use WCF to process. This way, the server needs to define the interface.

    Best Regards,

  • You can use WCF over TCP/IP, WCF over Web HTTP. ASMX WEB service over HTTP, Odata over HTTP or WebAPI restful over HTTP.
