Yes, I know exactly what you have to do:

1. The TCP component is an OCX, and DELPHI includes a "isp3" in the USES clause. BUT!!! Delphi "forgets" to include ACTIVEX. Insert it manually after drawing the component to the Form.

When creating an instance of TTCP in the FORM (What you may have to) each and every client, DO remember to set it's .PARENT property (EX. TCP1.Parent:= Self), else there won't be generated any events.

Here's some examples:

Procedure ConnectButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
var
  RemoteIP: String;
Begin
  RemoteIP:= '10.0.0.7';
  TCP1.Connect(RemoteIP,TCP1.LocalPort);
End;

Procedure SendButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Data: OleVariant;
Begin
  Data:= Edit1.Text; //Edit field
  // When using ARRAYS remember to lookup TSafeArray!!!
  // OleVariants can hold almost anything.
  TCP1.SendData(Data); //
End;

procedure TForm1.TCP1ConnectionRequest(Sender: TObject;
  requestID: Integer);
begin
  //TCP1 was in listen-mode, when generating this event
  TCP2.Accept(requestID); //You need to hand the requestID to another instance of TTCP!
  ShowMessage('Request received from '+TCP1.RemoteHostIP);
  TCP1.Close;
  TCP1.Listen;
end;

procedure TForm1.TCP2DataArrival(Sender: TObject; bytesTotal: Integer);
var
  Data: OleVariant;
Begin
  TCP2.GetData(Data, VT_BSTR,BytesTotal);
  Memo1.Lines.Add(Data);
end;

procedure ResetButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
Begin
  TCP1.Close;
  TCP2.Close;
  TCP1.Listen;
End;
