I've found the answer to the problem. See below, if you're reading the

The resolution of this address "droganor.no-ip.com" is totally wrong.

It seems that Winsock try to etablish a connection with ""
but this is NOT the IP of the DNS "droganor.no-ip.com".

I tried to change this DNS by another one which maps the same IP and
Winsock tried to etablish a connection with another different IP.

But only this game client has this problem. Internet Explorer resolve
DNS correctly. And the official game client hasn't any DNS support so it
uses an IP and Wine's Winsock interface handles it correctly.

So, here comes...

The Solution

Use a game client (Sakray) without DNS support. Then unpack the .grf
packages (Unpack the game's package then the update package) with
grftool ( http://openkore.sourceforge.net/grftool/ ) in the Ragnarok
Online folder, go to data/, edit the sclientinfo.xml and change the DNS
address by the IP corresponding, launch the client and enjoy the game !

I hope it will help someone.
