Assuming you are using VC++, you need to add ws2_32.lib to the list of libraries used in the link settings of your program (Project->Settings, then select the link tab, and then add the library name to the list of libraries.)

I suppose so, I have taken to not answering anything recently, to allow so as not to cut off the question.  

But recently some wrong or incomplete answers seem to be being accepted just because they are the answer, which is kind of frustrating when you put in a lot of work, as you of all people must know...

Yeah, that's a new trend.  It started about 3 years ago.  :-)
