I currently have a desktop application that uses signalR to respond to customer queries and update data in real time. Users connect to this application through a website hosted by an IIS server.
Everything works correctly but for it to work I have to open two ports: 80 for IIS and one port for signalR (or 443 for IIS and one port for signalR if in SSL).
For security reasons I would only like to use one port to do this (80 or 443). I thought about removing IIS and only using my application, but I don't understand how to do this, my application needs to respond to http type requests to serve html pages and signalR services?
Thanks for your help, an example would be appreciated.
PS: my application is written in VB.NET
