Simple TCP server recomendationsby Random_Walk (Prior)

Random_Walk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Greetings honoured monks
I have a client daemon that will be distributed to a (reasonably large) number of machines on our internal network. I need a way to remotely interogate the client for its logfiles, current version etc (this requirement is likely to expand to other methods too). I also need to be able to send it updated config files and updates to the code base. It has to be multi-platform (aix, linux, win32).
I am thinking of a simple server listening on the client and passing requests recieved to subs. Where it need to download stuff I will have it connect to a hardcoded server name to look for and grab a new version (we have control of the DNS).
Many thanks for your time and experience,
Pereant, qui ante nos nostra dixerunt!
