the new winsock2.h supports more socket types:
#define SOCK_STREAM 1 /* stream socket */
#define SOCK_DGRAM 2 /* datagram socket */
#define SOCK_RAW 3 /* raw-protocol interface */
#define SOCK_RDM 4 /* reliably-delivered message */
#define SOCK_SEQPACKET 5 /* sequenced packet stream */
so you have only to define 3 as type in the socket() call
