The descision between using a webservice and remoting is really based on the how your application needs to talk with the server. For something like this, I think that a webservice would be suitable. Build a client based interface (windows forms) and have that call the webservice for updates. You'll have to call it as often as you need according to how fast you want your updates to happen. I haven't worked with remoting so I can't shed much light on that, but perhaps someone else here can elaborate on the advantages. I just know that working with web services is pretty easy. You'll have to determine what to use based on the desired "refresh rate".

Work smarter, not harder.
