Whnever I use any function of this dll, I get error message that Entry point not found
How can I use this dll for winsock programming.

All DLLs are not COM DLL. You cannot register non-COM DLLs. This DLL is a pure DYnamic Link Library and to use it you must use Declare statements into your VB app.

i have declare the functions
Public Declare Function NetRemoteTOD Lib "netapi32.dll" (yServer As Any, pBuffer As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function NetApiBufferFree Lib "netapi32.dll" (ByVal pBuffer As Long) As Long

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

Or alternatively this sample project that uses the netremoteTOD call.

Actually looking a little further, neither of these functions are supported in win9x/me/ce only in NT/2000/XP I am afraid.
seems to suggest that 98 doesn't support the function.
