Is there any way I can easily upload files to the Internet using VB6? I can download text and HTL with the Inet control, but I need to be able to upload things too.

The same way...


Inet1.Execute "Ftp://ftp.myftp.com", _
   "PUT C:\MyDocuments\Send.txt SentDocs\Sent.txt"

If I have, say, a web account at geocities, is it possible to send a text file there (using ftp.geocities.com)? Geocities requires a user name and password for ftp as each user has their own folder.

C:\MyDocuments\Send.txt - this is the path to the file on your local computer
SentDocs\Sent.txt - this is the destination path on ftp

If I want it in the 'root' path of my folder, then do I just have Sent.txt without the slash?

Thanks for your help - this worked fine. Is there an easier way of downloading files (GET command?)?
