The goal of Network::CheckHost is to check that a host is available. This is done by opening a socket with a very small timeout (5 sec). Then, we close the socket.

If it was ok, we open a SDL_socket.

It should be good to use the same socket instead of reopen one.

Unfortunately, Network::CheckHost use posix sockets while we need after a SDL_socket after play. So a solution would be to rewrite Network::CheckHost with SDL_socket but it seems that the API provided by SDL_Net is too poor to do that. For instance, it seems impossible to change the timeout!
