I removed the old ICS and with the new one its all working now. But I am trying to send some data and something is not working here :( I made a little procedure like:
DestAddr : TSockAddr;
FillChar(DestAddr, SizeOf(DestAddr), 0);
DestAddr.sin_family := AF_INET;
DestAddr.sin_addr.S_addr := WSocket_inet_addr(PChar(Dest));
Socket.SendTo(DestAddr, SizeOf(DestAddr), Data, DataSize);
from where I call it, ie:
and No data is sent! :( If I use Socket.SendStr('..') the server receives the data ... seems something wrong when transforming the ip address because when I use Send() method, it worked.

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.
Other question is, there is the SendTo(Addr,buf,size) method, maybe Ishoulduse that, but is there any easy function to convert the normal dotted IP address (127.0.0.1, ie) to the 'sockaddr_in' type?
Use WSocket_inet_addr function (not a method of the component, a simple function). Something like: var DestAddr : TSockAddr; begin FillChar(DestAddr, SizeOf(DestAddr), 0); DestAddr.sin_family := AF_INET; DestAddr.sin_addr.S_addr := WSocket_inet_addr('192.168.1.1'); WSocket1.SendTo(DestAddr, SizeOf(DestAddr), Data, DataSize); end;
