Yes both.

For 1.9.4 complete suites (ICS, see www.overbyte.be) are available, see
in CVS projects/contrib/ics  and deeper.

sockets, winsock

DOS has no networking by default, and no universal API. You will have to
find/make a unit that does that. Check out the contributed units page for
something from Diego de Marco (or something like that).

However this is a _lot_ more difficult.
