     bind(serverSocket, (struct sockaddr *)&serverAddr, sizeof

     listen(serverSocket, 10);

          SOCKADDR_IN clientAddr;
          int clientAddrLen=sizeof(clientAddr);

          SOCKET client=accept(serverSocket, (struct sockaddr *)      
                                     &clientAddr, &clientAddrLen);

you MUST call receive first.
when connecting to a server the browser send a request, then it reads for the answer from the server.
so after accept, do :
char szRecvbuf[2049];
recv(client, szRecvbuf, 2048, 0);
then you can send the buffer
