Line of server code to support PUTTING a file from a client to a server via TIdFTPServer

What is the server code needed in the StoreFile procedure to PUT a file from a client to an FTP Server?

Example code for GETTING a file is as follows (from previous postings):

procedure Form1.IdFTPServer1RetrieveFile(ASender: TidFTPServerThread; const AFileName: string; var VStream: TStream);
begin
  VStream := TFileStrea.Create(AFileName, fmOpenRead);
end;

But how do you implement a PUT on the server side?

I'm sure the solution is obvious.

Something like this: (code courtesy of Bas Gooijen)

function TForm1.TranslatePath(pfad: string): string;  
var  
   i: integer;  
Begin  
   for i:=0 to length(pfad) do  
      if pfad[i]='/' then pfad[i]:='\';  
   for i:=length(pfad)-1 downto 0 do  
   if pfad[i]='\' then  
   begin  
      delete(pfad,i+1,length(pfad)-i);  
      break;  
   end;  
   if copy(pfad,1,1)='\' then delete(pfad,1,1);  
   TranslatePath:=pfad;  
End;

procedure TForm1.IdFTPServer1StoreFile(ASender: TIdFTPServerThread; const AFilename: string; AAppend: Boolean; var VStream: TStream) ;  
begin  
  if FileExists(translatepath(AFilename, ASender.HomeDir)) and AAppend then  
  begin  
    VStream := TFileStream.create( translatepath( AFilename, ASender.HomeDir ) , fmOpenWrite or fmShareExclusive ) ;  
    VStream.Seek( 0, soFromEnd ) ;  
  end  
  else  
    VStream := TFileStream.create( translatepath( AFilename, ASender.HomeDir ) , fmCreate or fmShareExclusive ) ;  
end;

This will create a file on the server, but then I must read from the client data stream and write this to the new file on the server.  How do I do that?  

Thanks for your help

Well, interestingly, that's all that you need to do... you created the TFileStream, remember? As data is read, the component will now automatically use the FileStream you created, and save to it... cool huh ;-)
