Exact similar discussion here, marked solved: Can you connect an HTML5 web socket to a Java Socket?[^].

...WebSocket works by the client side opening a port 80 connect to the server side, and sending a variant HTTP 1.1 request to the server to negotiate a WebSocket connection. If the server recognizes this, it will send a suitable response, and then allow the still open TCP connection to be used for full-duplex client-server interactions.

It looks like it would be possible to quickly put together a server-side that just understood WebSocket negotation and not full HTTP. However, I think you are better off looking at existing WebSocket implementations, including those embedded in HTTP servers / protocol stacks.

This Wikipedia page compares a number of WebSocket implementations, and should help you in deciding which server-side implementation to use.

But to directly answer your literal question, a WebSocket client can only connect to a WebSocket-aware server; i.e. that one that can perform the initial negotiation.
