Some help with client socket


Recommended Posts


Out of my depth here:

I have some automation running on a hacked livebox.

I want to socket connect, then send an instruction. Problem is the response is constantly changing and I need to somehow requery and parse the result at intervals like 5 seconds. Just beginning to learn PHP so be kind if there is an easy answer. Here is some cut down script.


switch ($_REQUEST['btn_submit'])
case "Liv Boost":
$response = send("boost liv 1");
case "Liv OFF":
$response = send("boost liv 0");
case "Requery":
$response = send("");
function send($sendstring)
$fp = fsockopen("xx.xx.xx.xx", 9996, $errno, $errstr, 10);
    fwrite($fp, $sendstring);  
return fread($fp, 2056);
function parse($RD,$par1,$par2,$par3)
If ($pos > 0){return substr($RD, $pos + $par2 , $par3);}
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
  <title>Home Automation</title>
<form method="POST">
<input type="submit" name="btn_submit"  value="Liv Boost" />
<input type="submit" name="btn_submit"  value="Liv OFF" />
<input type="textbox" name="rowID"  value="<?php echo parse($response,"livboostcounter",46,5); ?>" /></br>
<input type="submit" name="btn_submit" value="Requery" />
