Python newbie looking into communications...

I'm looking into writing a small application that can run on multiple 
platforms (linux, windows, irix) that needs simple communications with a 
Visual Basic.Net application. I'm writing both apps, and the main app 
*must* be vb.net.

I'd like the little Python apps that run on several machines to be able 
to communicate back and forth with the main vb.net app using (possibly) 
udp communications. I don't want the extra headaches involved in 
maintaining open connections (TCP)...something along the lines of:

SendData(MachineName,Data)

Since I'm a newbie to Python, any tips/directions I should look into? 
I'm still exploring language possibilities, and Python's interests me 
the most so far....portability is important.

Any help greatly appreciated!
