This is a package containing networking objects

I use Lazarus as my dev IDE and in Lazarus menu:
Package/OnLinePackageManager you can select from a number of available packages
that are not installed by default. Here you will find Synapse 40.1, which is
what I referred to.

The OLPM version has SSL support that works well in Linux. I don't care much for
Windows where I suppose you need to get some dll files too. In Linux openssl is
nearly always available and works without any extra coding.

As I stated it is not installed by default (as a package) but available in a
very simple way through OnLine PackageManager.
OLPM can "install" any package and if it has GUI components it will also compile
that into Lazarus. Not needed for Synapse.
