I want to use VB to create a webhook listener to consume messages from a service. The service does not have a listing in Nuget under Microsoft.AspNet.WebHooks.Receivers.*. The service requires an SSL certificate from an approved root authority. The system must listen on one of a few ports in their list. The service will be listen locally, not on Azure or any other service.
I have little idea of how to do this and so i have some very basic questions. Any additional guidance would be much appreciated.
1) Do i need to install IIS, or will the visual studio solution itself listen?
2) Must it be an AspNet project, or can i do this as a normal VB.Net project?
3) Is there a barebones example of a webhook listener? That is, what are the basics of listening in code?
