As I said before, it is not clear. MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winsock/winsock/setsockopt_2.asp) says those BSD options are not available but a few lines later they say it is available in the Microsoft implementation of Windows Sockets 2. My interpretation is that winsock 1 doesn't implement it at all and winsock 2, implemented by Microsoft support them.
