You have to use Readxxx and Writexxx methods of the components...
Check out online help...

I'm not using Indy because they are using blocking socket configuration...
Instead I'm using the standard TServer/TClient sockets for the job...

In that case in example to send a string:
Server Side:
ServerSocket->Socket->Connections[x]->SendText("123");
For server socket we have to define the connection to send that identify the communication to the other end...

Client Side:
ClientSocket->Socket->SendText("123");

In this case there is only one socket connected and we don't have the Connected array...

To read what is sended:
Create a OnRead event handler (Double click OnRead on object manager) and inside add:

AnsiString S;
S = Socket->ReceiveText();

That is almost all...
