IceStorm with bidirectional communiacation

skallzskallz Member Jacek PsiukOrganization: University of Science and Technology in Cracow PLProject: An academic project - instant messenger.
In my project I want to use the IceStorm service to distribute messages to clients. There is no problem with this when I subscribe clients' direct proxies to the TopicManager. A little problem arises when clients are behind a firewall and IceStorm can not reach them. Is there a possibility to use bidirectional communication with IceStorm? Or is there any other walkaround?

Best regards,
skallz.

    IceStorm cannot directly use a bi-directional connection. What you can do, however, is connect to IceStorm through Glacier2, which I would recommend for any internet facing application. Not only do you protect your internal network using Glacier2, any callbacks, such as messages delivered from IceStorm to your subscribers will transparently flow through a bi-directional connection.
