The above means that the following code fails:

      if (getsockname(new_sock,&dummy, &dummyLen) < 0)
	sql_perror("Error on new connection socket");

Sorry, but I don't know what the socket call fails, but it's probably
a problem in the Win95 drivers :(

If you want, I can give you access to the MySQL win32 source to help
figure out this, but if you aren't a programmer this will probably not
help you :(

I assume the only other option is to reinstall Win95 or install Win98
on the computer :(


PS: Sorry for the long delay before replying, but I just come back from
    a 2 weeks vacation trip.
