we have a program that collects a list of data from a device on a IP address seperate IP address.

what we *think* we want to do is to then send that data out via TCP\IP on an IP/port.

i say *think* because we want to be able to have other 3rd party entities recieve this data via a network IP connection.

we are acting like a filter.    getting the list of data is difficult and we dont want to have our vendors have to duplciate the getting of the list in their programs.

so....  what we are trying to do is have them be able to listen to a defined IP\Port to recieve the list of data.

is this even possible?  do we need to have something special on their end to listen (we were thinking a winsock or equivilant type connection)

what other ways might we be able to accomplish this goal?
