How to verify IceBoxNet is up and running?
We use IceBoxNet for managing our custom .net services. We start IceBoxNet by Process.Start() within our code and afterwards try to get the ServiceManager. Depending on timing behavior of the start() methods of our custom services which are started by the IceBox, we are not able to get the proxy for the ServiceManager at first attempt. Only after several retries we finally success.
Is there a possibility to check when the IceBox is up and running, so we don't have to implement a retry mechanism?
Btw: Is it possible to launch IceBox without starting the hosted services automatically?
