We don't have any problems with .NET service running under Mono. 
It's based on ServiceBase, uses EventLog and .NET Remoting without any problems.
All you need to do is to create init.d script to start/stop mono-service during startup/shutdown

Subject: [Mono-list]  Service or daemon with Mono?


What is the recommended way to write a service-like software in Mono?

My first guess would be to use the normal class ServiceBase existing in Mono
(and .NET of course). But there seems to be little information on how this
works with Mono, and from what I've read it is not considered stable (?).

1. Is it better to just create a normal app, turn on automatic login and run
it at login?
2. Is it possible to create a daemon using Mono?
3. Is there any documentation on how to "install" the "service" if developed
in Mono using ServiceBase (or any other method)?

In short: I'm looking for a way to build the Linux equivalent for a service
using Mono, and install it on a Linux-dist =)

Thanks in advance!
