Winsock VB Declarations, etc...

I'm using VB3 (16-bit) and I'd like the VB declarations for accept(), listen(), etc... for Winsock 1.1
I'm using MSGBLAST and I have some public source (VBrowser) which contains the numbers used for trapping event and close messages.  (8192, 8193)  These are appropriate for browsing applications such as a web browser, but what would I need for say a finger server?  What calls do I need to make to set up my socket and message trapping with MSGBLAST to get this to work?

  This isn't exactly what I wanted - I did state that I was using  VB3 (16-bit), and these links deal with VB4 (32-bit).  Even the declarations file is specific to VB4, and VB3 doesn't like it.
The finger client is good, but a finger server "listens" to a port, and this is different than simply sending and receiving data from a socket. (accept() is involved, as is listen())
  There is no server source here, but if you can give me a link to one I'd be grateful.
