The solution to this is to make sure that you only have ONE copy of
winsock.dll, make sure it is in the windows\system directory, and that it's
the one that's about 40k in size. Mine is 42080 bytes and is dated 7/11/95.
The winsock.dll file that comes with Trumpet is being loaded for some

file that I have for my old trumpet v2.0b is 145,152 bytes and is dated
