America Online Windows Socket
An add-on to "America Online for Windows," it allows you to run Internet apps that normally require a direct Internet connection to work. Technically, it allows an AOL connection to communicate with other systems using the IP protocol, the background language of the Internet. It is customized to work only with AOL and will not work with another Internet Service Provider (ISP).
