Has anyone had luck configuring Windows 95 with an IP stack that supports
raw sockets for use in IP polling and discovery of devices under Openview
for Windows? The native Win95 stack doesn't support raw sockets (neither
does NT) and I haven't had success using FTP's stack or Novell's LAN
workplace.

Thanks, Kurt

i don't know about doing this under openview, but ICMP.DLL has a
send_echo_reply() entry point that is quite useful for sending and
receiving ICMP messages (ping, traceroute) for doing discovery. the
only code sample i have, however, is a native method for java. its not
particularly tricky to use, but remember to use htonl() on the ip
address parameter.

I had the same problem with NT 3.51. According to HP they are going to release
another version by this Feb. which solves this problem.

Thanks Todd, I got the same information from HP's Developer support.

They use some tricks in the beta to get around Microsoft's lack of full ICMP
support. So far the beta seems stable.


The only place I could find the beta was on Compuserve, go HPSYS in the
openview library. It's supposed to be on the ftp server, I searched but
couldn't find it.
