I thought I sent this last week, but I used the wrong account, anyway:

This example is not "multi-threaded", but it handles multiple
connections. The basic API are ns_socklisten, ns_sockaccept and
ns_sockcheck. (http://rmadilo.com/files/nsapi/)

The example also uses ns_socklistencallback, but the code is very
cryptic. Basically the client contacts the server with a contact
address/port then creates a server to listen for updates (server

The server uses ns_socklistencallback but avoids hanging in a single
thread because it just gets the contact information and starts a
scheduled proc to handle the recurring request (push).

The scheduled proc contacts the client on the given schedule and
pushes the requested data.

The client could actually handle requests from multiple servers by
using ns_socklisten/accept:
