Just to expand on what others have wrote.

The wine config file, unless I am mistaken, is now totally defunct. Even 
if you create one I don't believe that wine is even reading from it 
anymore. Yes, the winecfg utility does edit the sudo windows registry 
that wine creates, but this is no more dangerous than any of the native 
windows configuration utilities. Almost all config info in a true 
windows install is stored in the reg anyway. Manually editing the 
registry is still not suggested, although regedit.exe can run under wine 
and will allow you to edit the wine registry.

As for network support, wine fully supports the TCP/IP protocol, and 
most apps that need it can use it under wine, provided wine supports the 
app in question.

As for apps that include their own dlls, yes, wine can use these, for 
the most part. The application most likely installs the dll(s) into 

Welcome to the wine community.
