No. winsock is Microsoft's implementation of Berkley Sockets which is the standard socket library in *nix os.

I don't do any windows programing, but I know that there is a Cygwin library for windows. As far as I am aware you can use sockets using that library. I'm not sure if MFC and Cygwin could be mixed? Maby someone out there that does windows programing will know?
