I have tried several perl upload scripts and I have the same problem each time. The server IIS 4.0 abort the connection when the files to upload have a size bigger than about 100 Kb. I have ever check the limiter parameters in the cgi-lib.pl and cgi.pm but nothing work. How can I solve this problem ?

I found that perl and IIS4 have some problems in cooperating.

The problems I found (and solved) are after upgrading from IIS3 to IIS4:
- perl scripts does not work at all
  solution: in the MMC, find where extensions are associated with external programs and change the perl association to: C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe %s %s. The %s must be in undercase.
- perl scripts that open files to write to don't work (including, but not only for uploaded files)
  solution: installed PerlISAPI (can be downloaded from the perlsite) and changed the registry manually:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\
Services\W3SVC\Parameters\Script Map

with a string value named .pl

.but it will have a value of :

C:\Perl\bin\PerlIS.dll

.you should edit the value so it's :

C:\Perl\bin\PerlIS.dll %s %s

This enabled perlscripts to write to files.

- Had some problems with NT write rights.

I haven't met your problem yet. Does your script work with small files ??

>The perl ISAPI (PerlIS.dll) is already installed, I have changed the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC\Parameters\Script Map\.pl C:\perl5\bin\PerlIS.dll %s %s) because this entry didn't existed but there is no change.

> In the MMC, the perl association is: C:\perl5\bin\PerlIS.dll (and nothing else works ..\perl.exe %s %s or ..\PerlIS.dll %s %s)

I really think that the problem comes from IIS 4.0 but I still don't know the solution.

I can't use ASP because of security problem.
The ASP solution would obliged me to create a FTP site that I don't want.
I prefer use the HTTP protocol to upload files on my server.

There are some ASP solutions for using the HTTP protocol for file-upload. See for example SA-FileUp from SoftArtisans (http://www.softartisans.com/)

The "problem" is you have to pay for it.
The good thing about this one is that it can even upload into a database (i love that).

Concerning the perl-problem: I'll be trying to find a solution for that soon too. I wonder if I will meet your problem.

You could use a script made by Tammy tam

upload cgi program for 95/98/NT WWW-Server.
It is very easy to use it. And this is very useful if you did not have FTP_SERVER, or you don't want to use FTP_SERVER to upload file to your server.The upload v1.0 is your choice, This is a 100% free shareware, you don't need to pay any charge.

I want you will think this useful.
