Specifies the DLL version that the client should use.
TCP/IP, SPX (Windows XP/200x) client side only.
For clients on Windows XP/200x, the default is ws2_32.dll (Winsock 2.2).
This option is used to support untested TCP/IP protocol stacks where the required networking interface functions are in DLLs that differ from the default protocol stack. The client looks for its required functionality in the named DLLs.
For clients on Windows CE, the only supported version is wsock32.dll (Winsock 1.1).
The following command on Windows XP uses Winsock 2.2:
dbping -c "ENG=my-eng;LINKS=tcpip(DLL=ws2_32.dll)"
