You have to use Readxxx and Writexxx methods of the components...

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...
