    Do you mean "real" DOS, or a Windows Console DOS screen?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    To use sockets in DOS you will have to find an old third party driver with documentation on how to use it. Or you could program your own version, although this is not a simple task, not impossible, but not simple.

    For console mode I have no idea since I never program in this mode.

    .. console... means you can still use Winsock.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
