I´ve tried it but it´s not reliable. Datagrams can arive disorganised or just not arive.
Some programmers said I most use TCP, but I need to use UDP.
that´s why I need pyrudp, but I can not find it.

What about the native socket call to SOCK_DGRAM?

Here is a simple example to read messages of a udp socket.

import socket
UDP_IP = ""
UDP_PORT = 5005

sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, # Internet
socket.SOCK_DGRAM) # UDP
sock.bind((UDP_IP, UDP_PORT))

while True:
    data, addr = sock.recvfrom(1024) # buffer size is 1024 bytes
    print "received message:", data
