We used sockets with VEE 3.2 running under NT and had no problems at all.
We ran the client and server in the same machine as well as between two NT
machines.  We did, at one point, try to run the client/server apps in a
Win95 machine and had problems but
we chalked it up to our inexperience with Win95.  Sorry I can't say more
about Win95.
