Subject Re: How to detect status of server instance?
Date Wed, 18 Aug 2010 03:02:38 GMT
I'm not sure I understand. You just need to know that some server
instance is running? How is that helpful? You still will need to know
what ports the given server instance is using to actually interact
with it.
What's the actual problem you are trying to address?
