network paths "\\127.0.0.1\files" does not work
Posted on 2003-11-13
I have an ASP IIS app I am updating and it currently is saving files to a local dir on the server. They want the files saved to a network drive like this:
Application("PhysicalLibraryPath") = "\\127.0.0.1\docFiles"
but this doesn't work. The server that is writing files there DOES have permission to write. I can connect to the path in Windows Explorer and copy files, etc. So why can't the ASP app do it?
It is reporting back:
Error Description Path/File access error
What the app is suppose to do is...
When someone uploads a file, the server then does whatever and moves the file to Application("PhysicalLibraryPath"). Any ideas?
