Hello. I get the error 10044 in Win95 when I use:

sock = socket( AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0)

AF_INET is not supported, why ?
Is there anything I can do so it will work with out error ?

Have win95 OSR 3 ws2_32.dll from the beginning ?

Yes.

      WSADATA WSAData;

      if (WSAStartup(0x101,&WSAData) == SOCKET_ERROR)
      {
            WSACleanup();
            PostQuitMessage(0);
      }

It works fine under Windows 98 but not under win95. I get the error 10044 in windows 95.

Have win95 OSR 2 ws2_32.dll from the beginning ???
What platform have es2_32.dll from the beginning ???

For IP sockets have you tried using
sock = socket( AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_TCP)
or
sock = socket( AF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, IPPROTO_UDP)?

If you are using Winsock 2 expanded protocol support try enumerating the protocols first with WSAEnumProtocols. This will at least give you an idea what protocols are available on your Win 95 platform.

wilsonkwan seems to be right, the last 0 equates to IPPROTO_IP which is definitely not a streaming (SOCK_STREAM) protocol.  Anyway, raw IP is very rarely used.

alexo, do you meen that I can not use IPPROTO_IP with SOCK_STREAM ? I MSDN 98 OCT it only use SOCK_STREAM or SOCK_RAW and AF_INET for IP. And IPPROTO_IP is 0.

Should I try to use WSAEnumProtocols to see what protocol I can use ? I'm shore I have TCP/IP protocol on my win95 machine. It works perfect on my win98 and NT machine but not with win95.

That's what I mean.  SOCK_STREAM with AF_INET sort of implies IPPROTO_TCP.
