thanks,

it's a sever emu for uo, and i'm afraid, i can't change the port
(would be easier). the server does not handle all incoming packets, 
so: lack of features. but i know the packet descriptions and 
formats... so i could add this myself. the server has a sendpacket 
command but not a receivepacket loop or something:( so i would need 
to be able to accept connections on the same port, and if they are 
unknown packets, they are handled by my server script.
like if packet = "BA97..."

thats what i want to do, i was told it is possible with socket 
programming.
but i don't know if that is right for python too:)

i'm quite a newbie, so can't imagine how i could listen on one port 
with both servers.
