Hi
All the definitions listed in the error messages are typedef'd but the
compiler is unable to find the type definition. That is what is causing this error.
May be some headers are missing or they are under some flag which you
need to define at compile time.
Or inet.h requires someother header to be included before it.
Try to find the definitions
