Appreciate it. I want to just write the code that contacts the server. Some Python pseudocode to represent the basics is below, but that just represents basic socket foo, minus the code for authentication, etc. The code would run through a list of 20+ systems and just connect one by one and log that system's local datetime. The assumption is we're doing UDP communication.
client = socket
host = local_system
data = datetime_query
remotedata = datetime_response
target = remote_system
client.connect (remotehost, port)
client.send (data, target)
remotedata.receive (remotedata, host)
print 'Remote system date and time is:', remotedata
else print 'No data received.'
