It's certainly possible to run PHP from the command line if you have php.exe or the cgi version of php installed. But I've never heard of anyone building a daemon out of PHP that was permanently resident. So for your notional xmlrpc server, you've got to have something that will intercept the incoming http request and pass it to php. Of course, this would normally be done by Apache. Conceivably, it would be possible to package the xmlrpc request in an email and then get your email smtp daemon (eg sendmail) to call a PHP script in response. I've never heard of anyone doing this, but on first glance it looks eminently do-able. It would probably help if you could describe exactly what you're trying to do in terms of the interaction between remote client and local server. -- Julian Bond email: [EMAIL PROTECTED] CV/Resume: http://www.voidstar.com/cv/ WebLog: http://www.voidstar.com/ M: +44 (0)77 5907 2173 T: +44 (0)192 0412 433 ICQ:33679568 tag:So many words, so little time -- For information about how to subscribe and unsubscribe from this list visit http://xmlrpc.usefulinc.com/list.html
