Then your program is doing something wrong. Indy has no trouble with
buffers that large. Please show your actual code.

Again, please show your actual code. You are likely not sending the data
property, and/or not reading it properly.

Indy does have support for byte arrays. That is exactly what the TIdBytes
type is - an array of bytes. Indy was specifically re-written in v10 to NOT
allow direct memory buffers to be sent/read anymore like in Indy 9. You can
thank Microsoft's .NET for that, since such operations are not compatible
with .NET. That is why the TIdBytes type exists now - its handling works
with .NET while still being cross-platform in general. There are
RawToBytes() and BytesToRaw() functions available for converting memory
buffers to/from TIdBytes, however.
