      if (argc != 3)
      {

      }
 
      //
      // Initialize WinSock.dll
      //

Exactly what it says : that main has to return an int (not void).

So :

        int main(int argc, char **argv)

instead of :

        void main(int argc, char **argv)

if you link winsock.dll to my code, will compile without error
