Hi All,

I wanted to figure out if,
We can design an application which uses an external hardware device plugged to the system through either usb, serial ports.

This application should be a client server based and the server will be hoisted at a remorte location.

The client user will be using a web browser based application.

Now the query is whether the data coming from the device in the client side be able to populate its data on the browser forms without human intervention.

The device to be used for data population will be some sort of a reader like which will require some sort of socket implementation.

Please suggest.

You'll need an agent on the client. This cannot be done with just server code.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
