Parser is for rsc files, SSH is good for read data, there is no need to open next port on router.You don't need a good parser. That's what the API is for - an interface where the data is trivial to parse (and in fact, many clients do already have parsers). Simply work trhough it instead of SSH.
Application source code will be made available by the GIT repository as soon as I deal with it.Do you have the source of that app available somewhere? Maybe I could make a different version that uses the API. Or (if you've already abstracted things in a good enough fashion) add the API as an additional option.
