As for the second project, I asked about it in the previous thread about
the SMDR/CDR processor.

Basically, I need to have a process that collects data via serial
(USB|RS323), connects to a remote port, or listens and receives data
from the PBX pushing it.

The most common is the RS232 serial connection.  Thats why I need to be
able to listen on the local RS232 port for data coming from the PBX system.

What I have built so far can connect to a remote machine, via a TCP/IP
connection, and wait for data to be push out the specified TCP port.

I haven't done it yet, but I know that I can easily build, using a
different project as a base, the version that would connect to a local
TCP/IP IP:PORT and wait for a PBX to send the data to that IP:PORT.

After the data has been received, the process flow will be the same with
all three methods.  Parse it, sanitize it, store it.

Hopefully that explains a little more.
