I have a function written in c and exported in a dll made by microsoft visual C++ 6.0 like this:

#define BIPSRESLV_API __declspec(dllexport)

BIPSRESLV_API int bips_resolve_once
          ( char * ldapHost     /* The Ldap server host name */
          , const char * node     /*The bitbus node name to be searched for */
          , char * cn          /*Returns the real cn found in the database (useful when using wildcards)*/
          , char * bipsHost     /*Returns the bips server host name */
          , int * bipsPort     /*Returns the bips server port number */
          , uint8_t * nodeAddress     /*Returns the bitbus node address (0-254) */
          );

How can I call this function from Delphi 6?

          bipsHost: PChar;     // Returns the bips server host name
          var bipsPort: Integer;     // Returns the bips server port number

Oops, stdcall not stdccall. A typo.
