A user of RabbitMQ has reported a problem on the 64bit Windows of Erlang
when running on Windows 2003:


The error reads:

The procedure entry point inet_pton could not be located in the dynamic
link library Ws2_32.dll

These commands are sufficient to trigger the problem:

werl -sname testnode@%COMPUTERNAME%
werl -sname foo -remsh testnode@%COMPUTERNAME%
