I understand using Front Page with a IIS (with Front Page extensions installed) you  can publish files directly to the server using HTTP port 80.

I don?t wont to use Front Page but need to transfer to the server using HTTP, as our firewall prevents using FTP.

Does anyone know of a  standalone HTTP transfer client which will work with IIS Front-Page extensions?

You are right.  FP does use http.  Aparently, some servers have a component (PERL) called HTTP UPLOAD, but I am not familiar with it.

The comment does not provide a solution, ie the existence of a standalone HTTP file transfer client..

Use web folders. I do that alot. Be aware though, that IIS will check the file links as you upload them, and MAY alter your files (been there, done that, it was NASTY). There's also a web publishing wizard that usually installs with FrontPage, that will allow you to upload files without an FTP client.

If you've got Win2K, you can set an http address as a network location, which works exactly the same as web folders.

Yes it does ClassyLinks..

Web Folders work well - at home. But for some reason the proxy at work isn't accepting the password Web Folders passes when establishing the connection, see -

http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=win2k&qid=20158889

However, using FP2000's Publish Web works great with HTTP through the proxy - ie the password is accepted..

All the same, I am still in search of a standalone HTTP xfer application - as I need this for NT 4.0 machines...

I still think www.curl.haxx.se may be the solution, but try any of the others listed on this page:
