I'm not sure if this is what you need/want, but I do automated uploads via FoxWeb scripts every morning using FCE4FP from www.marshallsoft.com.  It's a small DLL and calling it works fine from all of the FoxWeb 2.0 scripts I use it in.  I'm running WinNT 4.0/IIS4, but it would be my guess that it would work fine on Win2K as well.  On a side note, I also use their product SEE4FP to send me an email once the upload is complete.  That DLL works perfectly as well.

Is there a way to automate a FTP based upload.  I have worked out the download, but do not know how to do the upload.  I tried the methods demonstrated in the Examples, but the files the site will be dealing with are very large (multi-megs) and using filetostr() and strtofile() delay is not acceptable.

We a working with IIS5 on Win2000 server, I created a user for handling the FTP transfers (no anonymous logins).  Here is how I am handling the downloads (after the end-user selects the file from a fwx form)

  Response.Redirect('ftp://username:password@'+Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")+'/'+lcDnFile)

This works great, no delay from reading the file into memory, the username and password can not be viewed in the source, etc.

Anyone know of a simular method to accomplish an upload?
