    I developed the code and work. Upload in this:

    MODULE Module1
    VAR socketdev server_socket;
    VAR socketdev client_socket;
    VAR string client_ip;
    VAR string receive_string;
        CONST robtarget p10:=[[514.87,-110.47,411.07],[0.445122,0.0179534,0.895155,-0.015567],[-1,0,-1,0],[9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09]];
        CONST robtarget p20:=[[537.09,134.35,411.05],[0.445097,0.0179447,0.895165,-0.0156757],[0,-1,0,0],[9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09]];
    PROC main()

    SocketClose server_socket; !Cierra los dos por si acaso están abiertos (tanto servidor como cliente)
    SocketClose client_socket;
    SocketCreate server_socket; !En el servidor cremos el socket (crear el puerto o abrir el puerto)
    SocketBind server_socket, "", 1025; !le damos la dirección y el puerto que queremos abrir
    SocketListen server_socket; !Escucho el puerto del servidor
    SocketAccept server_socket, client_socket\ClientAddress:=client_ip; !Acepto lo que me manda

    SocketSend client_socket \Str := "Hello client with ip-address "+client_ip; !Envio dato al cliente para que sepa que estoy conectado (recojo la IP del cliente)
    SocketReceive client_socket \Str := receive_string; !desde el cliente confirmo al servidor
    WaitUntil receive_string<>"0"; !espero un dato concreto desde el cliente
    IF receive_string="1\0D\0A" THEN
    MoveJ p20, v1000, z50, tool0;
    MoveJ p10, v1000, z50, tool0;
        WaitTime 3;



    The comments in spanish if are any problem I might help.
