So, in effect, just to clarify my understanding…
the *only* difference between the TSnet indy and business license is that the indy user has the added burden of coding explicit tsNet commands to get the same asynchronous behavior that the business user can get with simple calls that were formerly blocking. But otherwise, the exact same asychronous task(s) can be accomplished with either license.

Absolutely. You can issue post/get/put asynchronous commands even to
the same server with the Indy license using tsNet commands directly
(tsNetGet, tsNetPost, tsNetUpload, etc.. ) or by using non-blocking
libUrl commands like "load url".
I was referring to the blocking calls, e.g. "post x to url y", "put x
into url y". For these commands, the behaviour of tsNet in Indy is the
same as the standard behaviour for libUrl. The script waits for the
command to return and in the meantime, no other blocking request can be
In Business however, blocking calls do not prevent other blocking calls
being made and executed at the same time.
Hope that makes sense?
