    Now find what the equivalent win32 function is.

    Porting code which hasn't been ported before is very hard work.

    The first two look like you're missing part of the package itself, what with the yaffs in the name.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    well, it seems you are using unix socket.
    may be you need to add include <winsock2.h>
    and also set the dependency of WS2_32.LIB.

    Good luck.
