Natural IP socket interfacing

Has anyone some good suggestions for the following.

We need to interface to hardware devices via IP socket programming from a natural environment on UNIX.

Natural will as you can image be the server and communicating to mutiple hardware devices.

It basically depends on the level of freedom you have in implementing the infrastructure.

From a listener invoked by a Natural session to a listener calling the NNI (Natural Native Interface) there are many ways to skin the cat, one would need to know a bit more about the requirements.
