Re: Fw: winsock


You need to use the following before making use of win sock calls.

if (WSAStartup(wVersion,&wsaData) != 0)
  return FALSE;

where the two parameters of WSAStartup declared and initialized as follows:
WORD wVersion = MAKEWORD(1,1);
 WSADATA wsaData;

Hope this helps u.

To make mistakes is human;
to stumble is commonplace;
to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity.
