Save a XML file through http/ftp

I have the following code:

    Dim xmlDoc As MSXML2.DOMDocument
    Dim blnSuccess As Boolean
   
    Set xmlDoc = New MSXML2.DOMDocument
   
    xmlDoc.async = False
    blnSuccess = xmlDoc.Load(WebServiceName)
   
    xmlDoc.save PathXMLFile
   
    ReadXMLFromWebService = blnSuccess

This saves a XML to local disk just fine.
The thing is that I want to save the file to another web server through http or ftp.
Giving the PathXMLFile such path I get an error.
How can I do this?
Thanks.

I assume the server is not on a local area network.  If it were, then this would be easy - you would specify the path to the server like: \\server\sharename.  However, I don't think that's what you mean.  I would say the easiest way, though not necessarily the fastest, would be to use FTP.  You will have to add a Winsock control to your form, and you'll have to create quite a bit of code.  Here is an example of an FTP client: http://www.vbip.com/protocols/ftp/vb-ftp-client-library/tutorials/tutorial-04.asp

It appears I spoke too soon.  I believe EDDYKT's method is quite a bit easier!
