<div class="moz-cite-prefix">Hi Michal,<br>
So...let us stay with winsock1 code and lib,<br>
and then you can NOT accept the ws2 lib in the makefile as
suggested by Robert Bao, nor my old code modif or any other
#include of "winsock2.h".<br>
In the past, my offer was to simplify the code for "custom"
rewrites of getaddrinfo/getnameinfo in resolver.c,<br>
by using winsock2 api,<br>
because such calls are available in winsock2, and NOT in winsock1.<br>
The more simple the code is, the easier to maintain it is, and
hopefully the more robust it "can" be...<br>
Just to mention, winsock2 is available on every version of Windows
including w98, WNT, w2000 and after,<br>
so that legacy OS compatibility would not be broken (and by
contributing to WCE stunnel, you have noticed that I DO care also
about legacy system compatibility...in every day life, because I
do not want MS to obligate every one to migrate to the next
version of their OS...because of lack of any good tool or service;
so I try to fill the gap with some contributions).<br>
To my experience, winsock2 offers an API more close to BSD api,
more complete, <br>
and covers more protocols.<br>
And it is also still maintained by Microsoft (unlike winsock1
I will check this in depth after official stunnel v5.00.<br>

I highly appreciate your effort.
<pre wrap="">But Michal : As of 4.34 I was also suggesting to replace winsock 1 by
winsock 2, not only by changing libs in makefile but also
some piece of code.
>From what I understood you assume that Winsock2 implies IPv6 and related
new resolver interface. This is not really true:

While I agree that Windows 2000 compatibility is not that important
anymore, I also see no real benefit in removing the legacy code.
BTW: In recent beta version I moved the controversial code from gui.c to
I'm sure you have noticed that Win32 is not my main (nor favorite)
development platform. I'm always glad to learn from your experience.
