Writing to a socket

Is it possible to send a string of iSeries' to an IP address? For example, I want to send the string '010205' to an IP address to be read by a robot directly, but I don't need conexion by user and password to session.

If you need interactive access you may use iSeries Telnet client. The iSeries Telnet client has a port parameter in it so you can Telnet the remote IP with the specified port and write what ever you want to the remote program.

However, you are looking for a method to write from a program to remote IP address. This is done using socket programming. This process is not difficult. I've found a good Web site that you can use as a good starting point, Scott Klement's Web site or even copy his first basic example here.
