How can I implement an upload functionality to a IIS 4.0 Web server with basic ASP functionality? I know there are components like SA-FileUP, but I gather that simple uploading can also be done with plain MS-provided tools/components. All I need is a simple way of transferring a binary file to the file system of the IIS server.

The problem with simple tools is that ASP does not support
ENCTYPE="MULTIPART/FORM-DATA" which is needed for file-upload. MS-SiteServer has a very nice client side ActiveX control for file-upload (drag and drop), but on the server side there is a dll: the form is not posted to an ASP, but to a dll.

The good thing about SA-FileUp is that is can store binaries directly into a database, I haven't seen that anywhere else.

The easiest alternative is perl, there are perl-scripts for file upload available on the web. Forget ASP or use SA-FileUp.

The point of Experts Exchange is also that answers are public. I would like it if MasseyM published his answer here.

I emailed Mikkon a CGI progam that I wrote in Visual Basic.  It is simply a program will take the multi-part information and save it as a file.  I am not sure what else you want me to post.  The code is Copyright © 1999 by M.R.Q. Corp.  My company.

A url where the program can be downloaded maybe ?
The source code ?
My point is that your answer is not usefull for any one who reads this when it will be a PAQ. So the PAQ is useless.

Thanks MasseyM! This isn't exactly a "plain MS-provided tool/component", but will probably do.

If you are using IIS4 there is no need for another program or asp code.
The only thing you have to do is go to
the adres http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/webpubwiz/postacc/01000.htm and download
Posting Acceptor v1.0 for Windows NT ,
install it and see the samples in folder
/wwwroot/scripts.
