did you find a solution to your problem about this structure?

If you are compiling the samples with Visual Studio 6, I think you need to have the Microsoft Platform SDK **for visual studio 6** installed and registered within VS (if I remember well socklen_t was not available in the original include files shipped with VS6).

Such *old* Platform SDK is available here

Do not try to use a more recent PSDK with Visual Studio 6, it doesn't work.

Hope it helps

  In the manual for winpcap 4.0 ( http://www.winpcap.org/docs/docs_40/html/group__wpcap__tut2.html ), i met a variable type named socklen_t. some people say it is defined in the header file sys/socket.h. but in M$ system i can not find the definition of it. 
  shall i provide a socklen_t equivalent? and it is saft to define the socklen_t type as unsinged int or just int?
