It appears that the data is being sent as a tuple rather than as a string and that it is messing up decryption on the remote host because of the data from the tuple formatting. I have tried to remove this data before sending the packet but it is still being introduced somewhere else.

I managed to get the text to send without the tuple formatting and I managed to get it to decrypt but as soon as I put the most up to date code on both my computers, it stopped working. I'm trying to work out the problem now.
