Devising your own binary file transfer protocol based purely on TCP sockets is a very tedious and error prone process that will get you no advantages unless you really have some special need that is not solved by any of the solutions that already exists.

The easiest way to work around not being able to use FTP and friends, is with a simple HTTP server and a CGI on the server machine that has logic for receiving file uploads, then you simply use either libURL or TSNet to send the files.
