In case you are unaware: DirectPlay is no longer supported by Microsoft (similar to DirectDraw). They have ceased updating it and it is only included in the DirectX SDK for the sake of backwards compatibility. In fact, Microsoft themselves recommend that you do not use DirectPlay and instead go for something such a Winsock for your networking needs.

There several free networking APIs out there on the net. A very popular one is Enet. Check the Multiplayer and Networking forum FAQ for more information.

My apologies as I am unable to answer your actual question.
