Hai all,

I have a program which uploads 100k to 100mb files... It's working fine if the connection is LAN or > 56kbps line. When i try to upload 180k file using 36Kbps Dialup modem it fails to upload and says "time-out"... I searched on net for solution but no joys... I've seen a comment that this in ongoing problem right from VB6... Can somebody suggest me some way of overcome this problem... The code is running on VB.NET using the namespace Net.WebClient.UploadData. I've tried Net.WebClient.Uploadfile "PUT" method, but the files are getting corrupted on remote server as PUT method has some restrictions on upload size... I've tried "POST" method too but unfortunately my server does not support this method....

I'm trying HttpWebRequest to upload files... I'm not sure that this might solve my problems.... does any body having experience using HttpWebRequest to upload min of 20mb file using dialup connection?

PS :- My remote system is running 2000 server with IIS (does'nt have .NET in it).

Any code sample would help to move forward.
Thanks in advance.

Hai Dash420,

>>The code is running on VB.NET using the namespace Net.WebClient.UploadData.<<
I'm writing it on VB.NET.

>>PS :- My remote system is running 2000 server with IIS (does'nt have .NET in it).<<
I dont have .NET installed on my server. so i can't use codebehind or server.scripttimeout....

Ok,
Open inetmgr, right click on the vertual folder. Click on directory tab. Then click on the configuartion button. Then click on the App Options. You find Asp Script time out in second. default is 90 sec. Increase it to required second.

Hai dash420,

I've solved my problem using the below code... Any how thanks.

Dim UploadRequest As System.Net.HttpWebRequest = CType(System.Net.WebRequest.Create(New Uri(TargetFile)), System.Net.HttpWebRequest)
UploadRequest.Timeout = nnnnnn (Required timeout milliseconds)
UploadRequest.Method = "PUT"
UploadRequest.ContentLength = New System.IO.FileInfo(SourceFile).Length

Dim SourceStream As New System.IO.FileStream(SourceFile, System.IO.FileMode.Open, System.IO.FileAccess.Read, System.IO.FileShare.ReadWrite)
Dim RequestStream As System.IO.Stream = UploadRequest.GetRequestStream()
Dim Buffer(4095) As Byte
Dim Position As Integer = 0, ivlLoop As Integer = 0
Position = SourceStream.Read(Buffer, 0, Buffer.Length)
While Position <> 0
  RequestStream.Write(Buffer, 0, Position)
  Position = SourceStream.Read(Buffer, 0, Buffer.Length)
End While

Dim WebResponse As System.Net.HttpWebResponse = CType(UploadRequest.GetResponse(), System.Net.HttpWebResponse)
Dim ResponseReader As New System.IO.StreamReader(WebResponse.GetResponseStream())
Response = ResponseReader.ReadToEnd()

RequestStream.Close()
UploadRequest = Nothing
