WCF/WF - What is the best way to push to a generic (not .Net) Client over port?

Asked By Tal on 09-Mar-11 10:04 AM
Hello All, I am posting while continuing my futile attempt at mastering Google-Fu.

I need to build an alerting service that pushes data to non .Net clients. 
I believe (maybe incorrectly) port 80 would make things easier.

I was thinking that I could have a WCF endpoint hosted in IIS7, but I have run into a circular mess of goo in my searches.

Some things say just use a socket.
Some hint at Duplexing in WCF.
WebSockets Look Interesting.

Can anyone suggest what you would do and related tutorials? 

Thanks

Tal

Duplex worked pretty well for us but we only used a .NET client - Robbe Morris replied to Tal on 09-Mar-11 01:06 PM

Which was Silverlight...  No issues with firewalls either.
