Re: Compiling/running Circle under win95

I've tried compiling CircleMUD 3.0pl11 under Windows95 and have a
problem running it.

I now have a "vanilla" Win95 and Plus! running on a P90.  I'm compiling
with MSVC++ 4.0.  I've not added any third-party software, although I've
not yet configured Win95 to connect to the Internet.

When compiling, I do get a warning (comm.c(339) : warning C4761:
integral size mismatch in argument; conversion supplied) but the rest
compiles quite happily.

However, when I then tried to run Circle.exe, the following was

        Thu Apr 25 13:33:00 :: Using lib as data directory.
        Thu Apr 25 13:33:00 :: Running game on port 4000.
        Thu Apr 25 13:33:00 :: Finding player limit.
        Thu Apr 25 13:33:00 :: Opening mother connection.
        Thu Apr 25 13:33:00 :: Max players set to 252
        Error opening network connection: Winsock err #10047

Winsock error #10047 is WSAEAFNOSUPPORT.

Can ANYONE think of why this may be?

Has anyone else compiled successfully under Win95?  If so, I'd welcome
some details as to config of the PC.
