Default Server-Client

Hi all,

I am referring to this website . What I'm trying to do is to have a server script which will receive data from GPS in one line and store it in some file. Now from what I can see in this server file, server is sending the data to client but I don't need that .. I need only server script to receive data and pass it to some txt file or whatever, but also need to keep that file alive if multiple lines get sent to server. Any hints ? Opinions, I'm willing to consider any opinion, I've made this work on windows with visual basic but I really want to setup linux or bsd server to handle this kind of operation.

Thank you,
C

You could try net/netcat from ports (the executable is called nc). Here's an online man file for it.

Code:
Netcat is a simple Unix utility which reads and writes data across
network connections using TCP or UDP protocol.  It is designed to be a
reliable "back-end" tool that can be used directly or easily driven by
other programs and scripts.  At the same time it is a feature-rich
network debugging and exploration tool, since it can create almost any
kind of connection you would need and has several interesting built-in
capabilities.
Here's a simple tcp example:

Host 1:
Code:
# nc -k -l 12345
Host 2:
Code:
telnet host1 12345
Trying host1...
Connected to host1.
Escape character is '^]'.
hello
Host 1:
Code:
# nc -k -l 12345
hello

Alternatively, if the sending host has the ability to use logger, you can send messages using logger, and have syslogd on the receiving end log those messages to a file. Just choose one of the available localn log facuilities.
