Setup up a Push/Pull type applications


Here's my problem. My Web Providor can't support an OracleDB (Needed for various reasons). My local ISP doesn't want server services on their network. Yet I have a server here at home which can support OracleDB.


So what I'm planning is to use my local machine and OracleDB to generate XML/XSL cache pages of my site and push it up to my Web Providor. I have this working on a limited basis and it works great.

The problem is when a user enters something on the website how do I get the data to my local machine. If I send the data from my web providor to home I'd need a server service which my ISP doesn't allow. So my only option is to pull the data, using my local machine, from my Web Providor.

I could setup a cron job to check the site frequently for new data but that seems like a lot of over head. (Not to mention the frequent hits)

Anyone have any ideas?

Ditch your isp and go with one that services your needs.

Nexus, I wonder how you got to senior member giving crap answers like that.

Anyhow, I do hope someone has some good usable answers for this issue as I need to do something similar myself.

Thanks,
Michael

And just what is so crap about that answer? What's the point in forking out good money only to be told 'Hey, we don't want you running this service or that service!' At least I gave a suggestion (good or bad), where's yours??!!
