just curious...
is your main aim to transfer directories, or to do it using winsock ??
if all u want to do is transfer directories, and if both the pcs are runnng windows (also possible if they are linux, or one is linux and the other windows, but i don't know how), u can share the folder on one pc and by typing in
\\ipaddress
of the first pc in the second pc (in windows explorer), access that folder from the second pc.
