1. A system for embedding management data within HTTP messages, comprising:

  • a network gateway computer storing a gateway communicator configured to communicate with at least one client computer, for receiving (i) a server-originated HTTP message intended for the at least one client computer from an HTTP server computer that communicates with the network gateway computer, and (ii) server-originated non-HTTP management data intended for the at least one client computer from a management server computer that communicates with the network gateway computer;

    the network gateway computer storing a gateway data embedder configured to insert the server-originated non-HTTP management data within the server-originated HTTP message;

    the at least one client computer storing a client data extractor configured to extract the server-originated non-HTTP management data from within the server-originated HTTP message;

    the at least one client computer storing a client data embedder configured to insert client-originated non-HTTP management data within a client-originated HTTP message; and

    the network gateway computer storing a gateway data extractor configured to extract the client-originated non-HTTP management data from the client-originated HTTP message; and

    wherein the gateway communicator transmits the extracted client-originated non-HTTP management data to the management server computer.
