Hi Karamja, I think you can try this code and the file will be saved at c:\test.jpg

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Jpeg, Forms, Graphics, IdTCPServer, SysUtils, IdComponent,
  IdTCPConnection, IdTCPClient, IdBaseComponent, StdCtrls,
  Classes, Controls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    IdClient: TIdTCPClient;
    IdTCPServer1: TIdTCPServer;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure IdTCPServer1Execute(AThread: TIdPeerThread);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

function CaptureScreen: TJPEGImage;
var
  DC : HDC;
  ABitmap:TBitmap;
  Jpg: TJPEGImage;
begin
  DC := GetDC (GetDesktopWindow);
  ABitmap:=TBitmap.Create;
  try
    ABitmap.Width  := GetDeviceCaps (DC, HORZRES);
    ABitmap.Height := GetDeviceCaps (DC, VERTRES);
    BitBlt(ABitmap.Canvas.Handle, 0, 0, ABitmap.Width,
           ABitmap.Height,DC, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);
    Jpg := TJPEGImage.Create;
    with Jpg do
    begin
      PixelFormat := jf24Bit;
      Assign(ABitmap);
      Compress;
    end;
    Result := Jpg;
  finally
    ABitmap.Free;
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  msSend: TMemoryStream;
  Jpeg: TJPEGImage;
begin
  idClient.Port:=9090;
  idClient.Host:='127.0.0.1';
  idTCpServer1.DefaultPort:=9090;
  idTcpServer1.Active:=True;
  idClient.Connect;
  Jpeg := CaptureScreen;
  msSend := TMemoryStream.Create;
  Jpeg.SaveToStream(msSend);
  if idClient.Connected then
  begin
    idClient.WriteLn(IntToStr(msSend.Size));
    idClient.WriteStream(msSend);
  end;
  msSend.Free;
  idClient.Disconnect;
end;


procedure TForm1.IdTCPServer1Execute(AThread: TIdPeerThread);
var
  mS: TMemoryStream;
  S: String;
begin
  with AThread.Connection do
  begin
    S := ReadLn;
    mS := TMemoryStream.Create;
    try
      ReadStream(mS, StrToInt(S));
      mS.SaveToFile('c:\test.jpg');
    finally
      mS.Free;
    end;
  end;
end;

end.

hmm, there is a memory-leak i guess

Yes.... sorry... put "Jpeg.Free;" after the savetostream

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  msSend: TMemoryStream;
  Jpeg: TJPEGImage;
begin
  idClient.Port:=9090;
  idClient.Host:='127.0.0.1';
  idTCpServer1.DefaultPort:=9090;
  idTcpServer1.Active:=True;
  idClient.Connect;
  Jpeg := CaptureScreen;
  msSend := TMemoryStream.Create;
  Jpeg.SaveToStream(msSend); // jpeg.free after the savetostream
  Jpeg.Free; // here
  if idClient.Connected then
  begin
    idClient.WriteLn(IntToStr(msSend.Size));
    idClient.WriteStream(msSend);
  end;
  msSend.Free;
  idClient.Disconnect;
end;
