So, how about this:

If it's called with a GUID and port by the application, it will
associate the GUID/calling ip/port together. It will also reply with
any account names that have been previously associated with it.
Then the webpage would call with an account name and get a reply of the
listening port of the application so it knows how to communicate with
the application (or does the application always listen on the same port
for the webpage?)

I'm just trying to figure out what happens if you start your computer,
the application starts up, but you don't have the web page up and
running. How is the application going to find out the account that is
associated with it? Does the GUID and account stay together in the
database after they are first associated?

If this isn't right, just give me a sequence of events and I can write
it out how ever you need it.
