It is likely you have an old wsocket.pas or wsocket.dcu somewhere. Check you
installation and be sure to delete every old file version. Use the latest
version from my website.

You must set TWSocket.BufSize to the largest packet you want to send. By
default, it is 1460 bytes which is the largest TCP packet on Ethernet.

Note that WinSock may fragment you packets depending on the hardware layer.
You have no control about it. It may also limit the maximum packet size to
some limit depending on the implementation. Also no control about that.

Use WSocket_inet_addr function (not a method of the component, a simple
Something like:
    DestAddr : TSockAddr;
    FillChar(DestAddr, SizeOf(DestAddr), 0);
    DestAddr.sin_family      := AF_INET;
    DestAddr.sin_addr.S_addr := WSocket_inet_addr('');
    WSocket1.SendTo(DestAddr, SizeOf(DestAddr), Data, DataSize);
