simple app to communicate windows and linux/unix

Careful!!! This is a newbie question!

Hello Community

I'd like to develop a very simple application, on the one side (some windows pcs with a listener and sender) on the other side a linux server that does the same.

Any suggestions about doing that? telnet, smbclient?????

It must be simple!

Basic question - why not use telnet or ssh clients like Putty?

I'd like to do some kind of report every X seconds, the server will catch all the information and process it.

May be I can develop some kind of app to automate that.

using telnet i'm not sure I can create a thread both sides to acomplish that. Is that possible?
