    >>> , can I send stuff to a Linux machine from a Windows machine with Winsock?

    Yes. Winsock is actually MS's implementation of BSD sockets, originally a unix setup.

    A quick and dirty primer to WinSock can be found here...

    ... once you get going, browse these sites for more info...
