Sorry for the late reply.  Yes it is possible for you to modify sbot to connect with silverlight clients.  However there are some restrictions with silverlight sockets which are:

* You must run a policy server on port 943.

* You can only host your room between the port range of 4502 and 4534.

Full details of silverlight sockets security limitations are available here:


I think the port range restriction kinda spoils it, to such an extent that I wouldn't personally be interested in implementing this feature myself.  But you can do it if you wish.  What is more likely for me, is at some stage I will eventually offer HTML5 client support in sbot, such as I did in callisto project.  With HTML5 websocket there is no such port restriction and no need for policy server either.
