I'm given the IP and port to connect to.
I will then send my username and password in this format:
the version number is just 4 characters of the program eg. "1.00"

I must then wait for a byte:
    '0' - valid
    '1' - invalid
then I am to send the data as
eg.    L3200150.00

They should have another program on their end that will slurp up the data
and do whatever with it.
