Port listening


I have a GPS unit that should attach to my server thru an IP and PORT, and then send data. So what I would like is to listen to a port (ex: 8051), and capture what ever is send to it, and then process it to a php script (ex: sent.php?data=whateverigetfromtheport)

Any ideas? I am running on Centos 5.

Thanks to everyone,
