I'm a little lost on this subject.  What exactly is winsock programming and what language are we talking about.  I have a project where I'm supposed to "pickup" data at 192.168.1.181:59003 from a digital phone system.  I can open hyperterminal and "get" the data which means I can see it on the screen.  How am I supposed to get that data into an html page where I can create rows in an SQL table?

"Socket" it is just the way to connect, using windows API in this case.
Winsock is above the TCP/IP protocol stack in the ISO/OSI model. TCP/IP is an industry standard communication protocol that defines methods for packaging data into packets for transmission between computing devices on a heterogeneous network. TCP/IP is the standard for data transmission over networks, including the Internet. TCP establishes a connection for data transmission and IP defines the method for sending data packets.

Microsoft has wrapped up the Winsock and INetAPI API calls into  package that you can easily incorporate into your C/C++/Visual Basic applications.

This is most simplified explanation , there is much more beyond that.
But to help you get started you can read those, and find many others at your own.
