Make darned sure you don't have 2 files named winsoc(k?).dll locatable in
your path. This is the best way to screw up winsock applications (which
you mentioned you ahve multiples). It also causes DNS problems. We
frequently have this problem with customers here who install the
Netmanage software after already putting in the Trumpet Winsock stuff.
It writes it's own wisock.dll and tacks itself onto the beginning of your
path, and..... f's everything else up.
