If you know what port the other program listens on and you know what kind of data you need to send it all you have to do is use CAsyncSocket::Send(const void* lpBuf, int nBufLen, int nFlags=0)
to send the data.  Below is a code snipet of what it might look like...

void SomeFunction()
{
   CAsyncSocket* pClientSocket = new CAsyncSocket; // allocate a new socket
   CObject object;
   long timeout = 0;
   CString strReturn;

   pClientSocket->Create(); // create the socket
   pClientSocket->Connect("172.16.128.10", "700"); //ip address and port
   if(pClientSocket->Send(&object, sizeof(object)) != SOCKET_ERROR)  // send the data
   {
      while(pSocket->Receive(&strReturn, sizeof(strReturn), MSG_PEEK) == SOCKET_ERROR && timeout < 5000)  // peek at the socket data for the return message or until timeout
         timeout++

      pSocket->Receive(&strReturn, sizeof(strReturn)); // get the data that just arrived
   }
}

Something like this should work...
