HTTP or TCP ?

I'm building a HTTP Client-Server application, but the performance is SO
SLOW! Passing a stream of 100 bytes back and forth, the best it will do is
about 5 calls per second. Is this a normal limitation for HTTP or am I
missing some obvious setting?

Testing the same thing using TCP components handles several thousand calls
per second.

I'm using Indy 9.0.14 on Delphi 7.
