I alsoneed this program so I tried to compile it tonight in MSVC 6 (it needs
to be linked to wsock32.lib, I assume). Compiling was not without a fight.
It breaks at:

void closesocket(int fd);
error C2373: 'closesocket' : redefinition; different type modifiers

Changing the name 'closesocket'solves the problem (erm.. is it the right
solution?) but when I try to send to PD netreceive patch (the one in the
reference folder) with
pdsend 3000 tcp "foo;" I get Socket(): Unknown error 10093

According to www.sockets.com this may mean that "the network subsystem is
misconfigured or inactive" - which it isn't (AFAIK). Can it be a Windows XP

I am still quite a novice in this programming/compiling field - so be gentle
if I am missing the obvious.

Take care
