[Mono-list] IPC Scenario between a service and a web page

We are using simple .NET Remoting with tcp channel and that works
nicely under both MS.NET and Mono. Only the initialization is slightly
different, but it's one line of code under #ifdef.
In other projects we have sockets or WebRequest/WebResponse exchange,
which you may also consider if your service is not a .NET-based but
rather plain c/c++ I did not personally test those on Mono but pretty
sure it's OK.
