[REBOL] Re: Ann Rugby 4.3

From: m:koopmans2:chello:nl at: 21-Nov-2001 23:03

Hi Petr, The polling mechanism is due to firewalls. In Rugby you can have Rebol processes that are client AND server in Rebol/View, so your scenario is easily implemented then. IF your company's firewall allows both ingoing AND outgoing http traffic (or TCP for that matter) of course. It is *not* a Rugby architecture problem, but merely network management. Graham's approach is good, but as we are all on different continents and have different ISP's.... Compare what Graham has done to the speed of chatting in ICQ or Yahho behind a firewall (*if* that works). So what I am saying is that provided your network is properly configured and you use Rebol/View you can do what you describe (easy!!!). Too late now but I'll send a simple view script demonstrating it to this ml tomorrow. And I'll fix the find? thing (as mailed before, wrong version ftp'ed, CVS woes...) --Maarten
