RSLinx and asp.

I need a help (either pointers to where to post this message,or actual pointers on my problem). I'm getting very frustrated in here.
I decided to write the interface between RSLinx and microsoft IIS. It seems that every time I'm almost there I stumble on yet another GOT YOU !!!'. I'm beginning to think that it is simply impassible to create the .asp page which will be able to post or get the data to and from RSLinx. (all the processing to be done on the web server) There are a dozens of activex components that could be utilized for this function, but to me it looks like those components have no right to work insight the .asp page this is why (and please correct me if I'm wrong pointing me to the resource o the web which proves it ) :
1.OPC is riding on top of the DDE. 2.Every call made from the asp page is running in it's own memory space without the actual application space.
Which means that it can not communicate with the DDE or OPC server running under the different memory space. (even if it runs as the service)
I think that most of the ActiveX components are designed to interface with the DDE/OPC servers running and accessible from within the same program and application space. And because of that, all of them are functioning perfectly well when called from within the client application running on the desktop with the forms, and text boxes behind. I have not seen one single working example on the call from within the asp page running on the Microsoft server which has the OPC/DDE server installed on it.
I have created a simple DDE to RSLinx ActiveX control using the VB6 build DDE support . Worked fine on the client did not work in the asp. Then I created the ActiveX control that talks to the RSLinx over the DDE using the DDClient controls no problem works fine as the client VB application, refuses to work as the asp. So at the end I have build the VB6 ActiveX dll which was using the RSLinx objects. Again the same problem goes belly up' if called from within the asp, perfectly fine from the application running on the console. Before I waste any more time and invest any $ for the third party components that claim to work I would like to ask the world' to prove me that I'm wrong and interfacing RSLinx to the WWW is realy passible. (some simple working and tested code will be much appreciated)
I'm willing to start a new project and distribute the code under the GPL if needed. And please reply to the post and only if you know that the information is corect. What I found is that there is a lot of the answers to the usenet groups which are not productive.

PS. I want to let you know that I even went as far as reconfiguring the account under which my IIS is running so it is not I_USR anymore. I even made the new www service account as the administrator of the box, I logged in to the server with that account ( so the registry is populated for that user). In my activex component class I also created a basic function that returns some values in order to test the correct component registration. I can still make the ADO and FS references but every time any type of the reference to RSLinx or DDE happens it goes belly up. I have no $ to spend on the RSLinx SDK, and quite frankly I'm affrait that even if I spend those $ I will still be in the same point which I'm in right now.
