Since then FPC matured, and there are several socket suites to chose from,
avoiding repetitive and error-prone reimplementation of the RFCs.

FPC even packages an own one as lnet. Since you are mostly interested in
Linux, Synapse might also be worth looking at.

Note that in general FPC 2.0.0 tutorials should work. However probably the 
tutorials are 1.0.x minorly updated to 2.0. 1.0.x legacy has indeed been
cleared out since.
