have you tried the client script at http://php.ca/manual/en/ref.sockets.php
this seems to (kind of) work ..
however i get a ton of warning messsages from php such as
"Attempting to connect to '188.8.131.52' on port '23'...
Warning: socket_connect() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean
Warning: socket_read() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given
Warning: socket_write() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean
Warning: socket_close() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean
not sure why
might be different for you?
