> I have read the archives, the faq's, the docs (that I could find) and I still can't find how to compile a winsock application.  I can't even get all the headers to compile properly.  Can anyone out there offer some help or simple samples on how to get a standard winsock cpp application to compile and run properly.

^^ you should hit the enter key once every 70 characters.

You need to do:

    #define Win32_Winsock
    #include <windows.h>

to pull in the winsock defines rather than the cygwin (bsd style)
socket defines.
