ipc, client-server app

My current task is following: there is an apllication with GUI. This application has some
processes managed and displayed its status by GUI. I would like to rewrite all torwards
a client-server architecture. But I am not sure this is a typical client-server approche,
because the server has to give a signal to the clients if its status was changed.

Moreover I would like that the program can run on Linux beside Windows (or server, or
client, or both). So I need some crossplatform solution. The speed is very important
requirement, so that I think JAVA is not good choice on the server side.
The program was written in C++.

In short I should write an service application, which could be driven by a client program
on an another machine and the server status changing should be displayed here too.
I would like the client program to be a web application later.

I have seen follwing so far:

- NamePipes
- Apache ActiveMQ

- QT

I have no experience in IPC, so I can not decide that if a message queue approche is a
good choice or not. Could anybody help me and give me the first step?
