Hello, I have a mobile 4G router that has the capability to transmit GPS data to a remote server. I want to set up to read this data into a database or text file on my webserver but I'm at a loss where to start. I have successfully run Netcat to pick up the NMEA sentences on one of my own machines that has a static IP. My webhost has a static IP also however this is not a command available on my webhost, and ports aren't sitting open willy-nilly either. The router has the settings to adjust what port the data is sent to and I was thinking that there must be a way that I could pull this into a file or database somehow. The site is mainly PHP. Might php socket functions help? I'm pretty clueless on this end of things, any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave
