Why didn't the fulgan.com link work for you?? It should.
Note: You can also use http (i.e. http://indy.fulgan.com/SSL/) for the 
fulgan link (because otherwise you couldn't download it automatically 
with your program because you need OpenSSL to download via https ;)

Try to figure out why the fulgan-link doesn't work.

Yes, this is normal.

It's the same with the fact that system32 in C:\Windows has 64 bit DLLs 
and SysWOW64 has the 32 bit DLLs on a 64 bit OS machine.

Some background about the naming:
