What he means is "Winsock"- he simply wants to know if Labview is capable of using TCP sockets to communicate, to which the answer is yes. It also has higher level communication functions that work over TCP but are far easier to use- TCP is text, essentially- you have to send bytes, and as such you have to break the data down into bytes. With Labview you can send complex data structures across the network to another machine without having to do this.

I think your supervisor would like to use TCP/IP for accessing some detector hardware. winsocket is the TCP/IP stack of M$ Wind**s. Labview has a built in TCP/IP stack or it is using winsockets. I don't know. But it is possible to access devices or other computers by tcp/ip.
You can also write a dynamic link library, which uses winsockets. You can then use this dll for accessing your hardware or computers.
I also use this for accessing high voltage supplies in a particle physic experiment.
