I have used the AsyncPro com port also and I noted that there is a
TCP/IP version of the com port as well (ApdWinsockPort) such that
using this in Delphi would make it possible to just switch from one to
the other by setting a property.

I once tried to look at the dependencies in order to cut down on the
number of needed units for my usage of the serial port, but it just
chained wider and wider so the task became insurmountable.

I tried to find instructions on how to use Indy in Lazarus/FPC but
what I found was very old and incomplete...
