I don't understand your code at all. Why are reading from the same socket as you are writing to?

And what on earth do you mean by:

and send a tail command using File::Tail

    while (<$sock>) Just means while the connection is open between the two machines. I send stuff back and forth between the two machines right up until the client machine sends "tail\n" Then all of the data streams across the socket. Sorry about the "send tail using File::Tail" Not very clear. Hope the above clears it up. The client sends that command and the data starts pumpin'
