FWIW most of the time when I wanna do something like this on the Edison, I ignore Edison and just look for Linux - the following may be useful
In a month or so I will be looking for something to perform bidirectional comms with a mac running osx - I believe I can configure (or get another instance of eclipse) to get native mac code to run - (I hate x-code with a passion.....).
I will be following what you are doing (and wish you the best of success) - because I may wish to unashamibally (sic) leech your code at some stage.

agree with Stan - from my side I used UDP sockets from within C, C++, Node.JS and Python on Edison fine. Haven't looked into Mono .NET but probably doable there as well. Just note: Linux socket programming is slightly different to Windows one (different header files ...)
Just the default busybox netcat "nc" on Edison doesn't come with udp (-u) support. If you'd want to go via nc you'd have to install a more powerful netcat version
