Using WIN32S Windows Sockets Applications with TCP/IP-32

The information in this article applies to:


Windows Sockets applications that use the WIN32S API (such as the Trumpet WinSock Point to Point Protocol [PPP]) do not function properly under Windows for Workgroups version 3.11 with the Microsoft TCP/IP-32 VxD. In order for these applications (for example, NCSA's Mosaic Alpha 3) to operate properly with TCP/IP-32, an updated version of WIN32S is required.


Windows Sockets applications that use WIN32S have memory locking issues with Win32S and the TCP/IP-32 VxD that are corrected in version 115a or later of the WIN32S distribution. The updated distribution of WIN32S can be found on the Internet. The file is located in the following path:

Mosaic Alpha 3 is manufactured by NCSA, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
