>From your description, it sounds like a you need a simple program that
listens on this port which will accept anything that comes in, process
it and then send it to your actual web application. So, yes. this is a
program that uses a socket.

This is a simple proxy that will listen on a local port and then use
some HTTP client library to send it to the web application.

The pages in the Python docs which discuss 'SocketServer' has a small
example which you can alter to suit your needs I think.
