Your objective is to send "alert_fast" type events over the network to
your remote system running on
What service is running on that port and what type of input it is expecting?

If you need a specialized output mode, then you might base your self
on an the already existing output plugin
and add the code you need, or has you mentionned write your own output
plugin from ground up.
