This is off-topic for IBO...but...

ideally you need to get the Win95 Plus upgrade to Winsock2 (sorry, it's so old I forget the patch number).

At the very least, you need an entry in the c:\Windows\Hosts file of the client machine containing the IP address and server name of the host machine. If there is no file there named hosts, look for one named hosts.SAM, copy and rename it to hosts.
