Upload File from IIS server to a remote FTP Location

Hello All,
I am trying to upload  files from an IIS server (text file) to a remote FTP site through ASP and I am running into all kinds of problems.  I tried using the ASPInet control and I always get error messages like 12007 and 12111.  I tried all permutations for that and gave up hope.  Next tried the MS Internet transfer control and I am not having much luck with it.  It just seems to hang in trying to instantialte that object.

ANybody have any other options or what am I doing wrong?  I have no problems accessing the remote server FTP location from my location through the web browser.


Attached are the codes for both ASP Inet control and MS Internet control

******************************************************************************************
ASP Inet Code
*****************************************************************************************

FTP_TRANSFER_TYPE_ASCII = 1
 FTP_TRANSFER_TYPE_BINARY = 2


  Set FtpConn = Server.CreateObject("AspInet.FTP")
 
  if FtpConn.FTPPutFile("LOCALHOST", "Anonymous", "", "test2.csv", "c:\test2.csv", FTP_TRANSFER_TYPE_BINARY) then
    Response.Write "<p>FTP upload Success...<br>"
  else
   Response.Write "<p>FTP upload Failed...<br>"
   Response.Write FtpConn.LastError
  end if
******************************************************************************************
MS Internet Control COde
******************************************************************************************
FTP_TRANSFER_TYPE_ASCII = 1
  FTP_TRANSFER_TYPE_BINARY = 2



  'Set FtpConn = Server.CreateObject("AspInet.FTP")
  Set HttpObj = Server.CreateObject("InetCtls.Inet.1")
 
  HttpObj.Protocol = FTP
  HttpObj.AccessType= 0
      'HttpObj_StateChanged(State)
 
if HttpObj.StillExecuting then
Response.Write "still"
else
Response.Write "end"
end if
Response.end
HttpObj.url="ftp://ftp.remoteserver.com"

HttpObj.UserName="Username"
HttpObj.Password="PW"
'HttpObj.Execute ,"DIR"

'HttpObj.Execute ,"put C:\test2.csv /test2.csv"
HttpObj.Execute ,"CLOSE"



  Response.Write "Error is " & HttpObj.ResponseInfo & Httpobj.ResponseCode

Hi geoenvi,

The 12007 error corresponds to ERROR_INTERNET_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED, which means that the host name you specified was not resolved.  Are you sure you used the correct host name?  Try connecting to the same server manually with an FTP client.  Did you get this error while connecting to "localhost"?  This would be very strange.

The 12111 error means ERROR_FTP_DROPPED, which means that the FTP operation was not completed because the session was aborted.  I've seen this in some situations with firewall-related issues.  In some cases it was solved by switching from ACTIVE FTP to PASSIVE FTP.

Regards,
Tiritas

Yes to the first Question.  When connecting to localhost, I get the other error 12111.  How would you switch from active FTP to passive FTP for the iNET component?  I switched my browser to do that and I am manually able to connect to the FTP site but the idea is to progamaticcaly connect
