Create windows Service that listens in different ports. RRS feed

  • User-1868956463 posted

    Hi all, I need some advice for the following issue.

    I have three projects,
        1. UI project (4.6.2 framework)
        2. Messaging project (core 3.1 framework)     (Contains REST API and SignalR project)
        3. BatchProcess Project

    The Messaging project will be running as a windows service. I need the signalR project to listen to port, say, 7000 and REST API to run on port 7500.

    my flow is somewhat like this. From UI I will connect to SignlaR, in response I wll get the connectionId. Then I call the batch process sending the connectionId as a  parameter.  The Batch process run for a while and call the REST API in Messaging project with connectionId. This API will inturn calls the signalr hub class and sends the messages to the respective client.

      How should I create a windows service in .net core that listens in two different ports. suggest me or plz provide me a link. 

    Kindly suggest.

    Of course the REST API and SignalR are Web solutions that are  hosted by a Web server that I know about.  I dont see how a Windows service  running on the Windows desktop is supposed to be sitting there  listening on any port, since it cannot host Web applications

    Maybe, I am missing something.

    Why do you want two different ports? As asp.net core apps are command line apps, it’s each to convert to a service, but why not just use iis?

    I guess you do not want client - server model. And you are trying to install all the application in each of the client.

    Signal r is needed only when server needs to contact client. Otherwise you could do a polling mechanism by calling the server at regular intervals.

    Signalr and api needs to be installed separately and should be run on separate port.

    Please check if you can try
