Could you explain to me what the Winsock Control is? We have a winsock
DLL implementation already.....

It is possible yes, but rather hard. OCXs are mainly for plugging into
IDEs yes? They are normally shipped with the app. So would we really
need one in Wine?

Also, such a thing would need to use the Win32 winsock api really, not
unix sockets.
