It use "Wsock32.dll" ... included from "standard.snp" and "battle.snp"
The Dplay dll's arn't included anywhere so he probably dosn't use it.

Visual C++ ussualy ships with network samples..

As a general idea you can get the platform SDK from Microsoft and install the
network samples... (you will probably , still , need VC)
