Problem when a thread read from a socket...

HI!!
 I have a socket class. Here is the OnReceive function:

void CMySocket::OnReceive(int nErrorCode)
{
      CSocket::OnReceive(nErrorCode);
      WaitForSingleObject(m_hEventThreadOK, INFINITE);
      VERIFY(SetEvent(m_pThread->m_hEventRead));
}
 As you can see, the object wait until a thread object is initialized, then set a read event.
In the thread, I wait to the read event:
...
   WaitForSingleObject(m_hEventRead,INFINITE);
   try
   {
      pMsg->Serialize(*m_pArchiveIn);
   }
...
When I try to make a serialize trough a &m_pArchiveIn object, which is declared in CMySocket class, I get an assert in sockcore.cpp:
void CAsyncSocket::AssertValid() const
{
      CObject::AssertValid();
      ASSERT(m_hSocket == INVALID_SOCKET ||    CAsyncSocket::FromHandle(m_hSocket) != NULL);
}
But if I make the next:
void CMySocket::OnReceive(int nErrorCode)
{
      CSocket::OnReceive(nErrorCode);
      WaitForSingleObject(m_hEventThreadOK, INFINITE);
      m_pThread->ProcessPendingRead();
}
(I call direct the function from the thread object)-> its OK, but is not multithreaded!!!!!
What is the problem????(I want, that the thread to read from the socket, and process the data. There are some sockets objects, every has a "peer" thread, which must cooperate whit this...)
 Help!!

You CANNOT use MFC objects across threads.

Use the handle in CSocket to pass to the thread, then in the thread do a CSocket::FromHandle();

Now you will have a CSocket object you can use in that thread.

Hi!!
 I tried to get a CSocket object from a handle. In my thread I use now a constructor withh the next form:

CClientThread::CClientThread(CServerDoc* m_pDoc, SOCKET m_hSocket)
{
  this.m_hSocket = m_hSocket;
}
and in the InitInstance I try to get a pointer to my socket:

m_theSocket = CSocket::FromHandle(m_hSocket);

but the returned value is NULL!! (m_theSocket = NULL)

I tried to do this with Attach(m_hSocket), declaring a CMySocket
class in my thread (or a CSocket class). Doesn;t work with both.
The m_hSocket value is 33 (its OK?), and when the FromHandle function try to look up for this socket in his table, doesn't find this.
  Help!
