    COM port belongs to different technology and sockets belong to different one.

    Sockets are end points for communication in IP based network while COM ports are end points for communication in serial interface network.

    Its like:

    [Computer1] <-> [COM_Port] <-> [Cable/Bluetooth/some_other_technology] <-> [COM_Port] <-> [Computer2]


    [Computer1] <-> [Socket] <-> [IP_Based_Network] <-> [Socket] <-> [Computer2]

    I hope it answers your question...
