Communicate with IP port across TCP

Communicate with IP port across TCP

Communicate with IP port across TCP

(OP)
Anybody have a solution for sending / receiving messages to a specified IP address/port?  I need to interface with a commercial package from our in-house systems running RM/Cobol 11 on Linux. Need synchronous communication.  Otherwise messaging middleware would be an option (maybe an expensive one).  Ought to be able to write a C program to handle the socket communications and then just call it from the Cobol side. Sure seems like a lot of people ought to have crossed this bridge before, so I am hoping I can find something we can take off the shelf, rather than having to write it ourselves.

From searching previous posts, I see that AcuCobol provides a socket interface callable from Cobol. Maybe now that both AcuCobol and RM/Cobol are both under the MicroFocus roof, maybe we can get something from them.

Still any and all suggestions are welcome.
