[Mono-list] COM / DCOM in Mono

I don't want to emulate COM and/or make Linux apps talk suing DCE-RPC to

My main intention in here is to simply allow ASP.NET programs that
access COM objects to run on Linux under Apache2, Mod_Mono and Mono.
That's it.

Instead of emulating the environment I simply delegate it to the Windows

Be aware that Greg Turner is working on a DCOM implementation for
Wine. He has some initial tests running (not just DCOM but binary=20
compatible to Windows).

One of the problems he identified was the fact that a number of
Linux programs provide DCE-RPC services on Linux: Samba (as the oldes
and most advanced program), DCE-RPC itself and DCOM. This mess would=20
require some kind of DCE-RPC "portmapper" to sort out.
