I want to use MFC CSockets to talk to an embedded device using Berkley type sockets (not a PC). Can this be done?. In particular will the onrecieve notifications work or do I have to design my code with straight winsock.

I'm asking this beause I have code from a previous project (PC to PC)I would like to use as the basis for this project.

CSockets is just an MFC class that encapsulates Windows sockets.  Windows sockets (a.k.a. WINSOCK) is a Microsoft Windows adaptation of the Berkeley sockets library that originated on unix.  There is a fairly close correspondence between the two libraries.

But to answer your question, yes, absolutely a Windows CSocket class CAN connect to and communicate with a Berkeley sockets application on a remote system.
