Windows Sockets (Windows CE 5.0)

Windows CE 5.0
Send Feedback

Windows Sockets (Winsock) for Microsoft® Windows® CE-based devices specifies a programming interface based on the familiar socket interface from the University of California at Berkeley. It includes a set of extensions designed to take advantage of the message-driven nature of Windows CE. Windows CE .NET 4.1 and later supports Winsock 2.2, which provides easier access to multiple transport protocols.

Following the Windows Open System Architecture (WOSA) model, Winsock defines a standard service provider interface (SPI) between the application programming interface (API) and the protocol stacks. Winsock 2.2, with its functions exported from Ws2.dll, is not limited to TCP/IP protocol stacks as is the case for Winsock 1.1.
