Hello all,

I have a console app that will be running as a service, so it is headless. I want to create another console app, that can somehow connect to the existing console app allowing the user to issue commands.

Both console apps will be on the same machine.

Ideas, suggestions, instructions or sample code would be really really appreciated.

Thank you,
Tim
