Self-hosted WebSocket server

Jan 17, 2014 at 11:47 AM

I am looking for the way of having a self-hosted WebSocket server in a windows service. I know that it is possible because SignalR can, and it uses OWIN. For this particular project, we do not need all the SignalR infrastructure, we only need a plain and straightforward API for allow browsers to open a WebSocket and control when it connects/disconnects.

I have been taking a look at "Microsoft.Owin.Host.HttpListener.Tests.OwinWebSocketTests", but I am a little bit lost.

What would be the right way of selfhost a WebSocket server with OWIN?

I did as on the links, but still as a client connects ServerSentEvent. although it is I'm doing on Windows 8.
What are some other ideas?

If you've removed SignalR from the client and server then why is anything attempting to do ServerSentEvent?

Can you get this plain sample server to talk to its sample client?

What client are you using?
