Switch to a win32 compiler ... preferable VC++ or still better to linux gcc or gcc port for windows like mingw32

then take a look at

Almost all embedded OS have the same concept of socket programming, the APIs may differ though. I would recommed gcc ahead of VC++ and in any case, both are a far better choice as comapred to TC 2.0 for DOS

If you are planning to do socket programming for embedded devices, you better use embedded VC++ (it is freeware).
So it contains documentation about socket programming.
