Graceful close of winsock?

I'm trying to write a server. There is a button for the user to press to stop the server. Then the server will close all the client sockets that are connecting to it. Here is the code:
while (!m_connectionList.IsEmpty())
{
  CClientSock* pSocket          =(CClientSock*)m_connectionList.RemoveHead();
  pSocket->ShutDown();
  BYTE Buffer[50];
  while (pSocket->Receive(Buffer,50) > 0);
 delete pSocket;
}
However, the server 'hanged' at the statement : while(pSocket->Receive(Buffer, 50)>0);
But at that time, my clients were not intending to send anything to the server.
p.s. I'm using MFC the CSocket class. CClientSock is the derived class of CSocket
Why?

Try the Close function , not the Shutdown . Shutdown leaves the socket open .

*and* if you really want to process the remaining data on the socket ( I do not understand why anyway ) ,

you should not check for >0 . Receive returns 0 if a socket is closed , and SOCKET_ERROR if an error occurs . After Shutdown , Receive returns SOCKET_ERROR and thats why your while loop halts .
