    clients pc to have two-way comms with my server?

    Hi,
    I am trying to enable a feature like this:

    1. user goes to page 1
    2. enters data to search box
    3. receives response 'wait a minute there may be an answer'
    4. after a period of time, their page refreshes with a new update to the message, triggered by my server using (amongst other things), their IP address.

    Can this be done as described or can anyone suggest a better solution, please.

    to clarify: it has to be triggered by my server rather than as a page-refresh, so that multiple users are responded to, in order of who performed point 2 first.

    You might want to explore "server push", I have no experience with using push technology so all I can suggest is to google it.

    Thanks, I hadn't heard of that expression before.
