Subject: TCP/IP and /djgpp/samples/dpmi/pktdrvr.c

Allegedly TCP/IP communication should be possible under DESQview/X
from QuarterDeck.  It certainly works for programs using the X
protocol; whether you can directly drive Berkeley sockets or whatever
is an open question, as the QuarterDeck-supplied library for DV/X and
DJGPP was definitely broke for quite a while.  (Eg, a couple of us
tried to implement real pipes using sockets, and failed dismally.)
However, it was revised a couple of times, so maybe we got lucky :-)
Haven't tried the revised sockets and API library nor seen any traffic
about it recently (but I haven't been reading comp.os.msdos.desqview
for a while), and DV/X 2.0 is in beta with a Jan 17 deadline, so 2.0
should be released publically shortly, and you might want to wait for
that.
