Howto use Sockets in D3

I am trying to make a small chat program in Delphi 3 using sockets, or that is, there is allready one provided with Delphi 3 but I am trying to extend it so that I can send a bitmap over using the TWinSocketStream, but it is kind of hard to get some example code on how to work that thing, so if anybody would be so kind as to show me how, I would be most gracefull.
Eg. just sending a file using a TFileStream would be nice.

I'd suggest you to have dWinsock component for Delphi. This is pack of excellent winsock components and also have lots of examples (file sending is made as procedure so you don't have to program it yourself). The home page of dWinsock is http://www.aait.com/dwinsock/

hope it helps
