    May I ask why you would want to host an asp site on a windows phone? Might make more sense to look into Windows for IoT, maybe on a raspberry pi. – Thomas Dec 22 '15 at 18:24
  • I am looking for a way to manage win phone content over remote web site which can be accessible within a WiFi where the phone is registered. For example there is an application that doing files transfer: microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/wi-fi-file-sharer/9wzdncrcx2jb . I would like to get how it works and make something similar – Yaugen Vlasau Dec 23 '15 at 7:42
  • In this case this would be a question for StackOverflow. – Thomas Dec 23 '15 at 11:07

Technically, it's possible for an app to listen for connections from the local WiFi networks for as long as the app is active. However, doing so would seriously affect the battery performance, and also stop working once a different app was brought to the foreground.

If you did want to pursue developing such an app yourself, then I'd suggest looking for examples on MSDN or asking on our sister site for questions relating to development
