OOPS! After I sent my earlier message I realized that the fpconnect
example uses code that attaches the socket to textfiles Sin and Sout.
But my use is specifically NOT a text based system, all data are
binary and no iterpretation whatsoever of the content is allowed.

Can I still use the sockets unit with fpconnect? Or must I use the
depreciated Connect method so I can specify the files as binary or
text files? Connect is overloaded....
