Re: Callbacks over Named Pipes

We don't plan it because

1. WebSockets on the loopback (127.0.0.1) have very good performance - at least as fast as named pipes from our tests
2. We had issues with Named pipes security between Windows services or between a Windows service and a desktop app

Re: Callbacks over Named Pipes

So, for business application in desktop client-server architecture with callbacks feature (bidirectional communication) and the same for web client-server preferred solution is using websockets. In that right?
