Unfortunately our Windows developer/maintainer is out for a little while (he's getting married); he pretty much did the Windows stuff by himself, so none of the rest of us know much about it. :(

inet_pton is a standard function call relating to IP addresses that we use in the internals of OMPI; I'm not sure why it wouldn't be found on Windows XP (Shiqing did cite that the OMPI Windows port should work on Windows XP).

This post seems to imply that inet_ntop is only available on Vista and above:

So perhaps Shiqing needs to put in some kind of portability workaround for OMPI, and the current binaries won't actually work for XP...?

I can't say that for sure because I really know very little about Windows; we'll unfortunately have to wait until he returns to get a definitive answer. :-(
