No. You can use ASP/vbscript, but NOT vbs scripts. They do NOT have the same features.

Well, if you just want to make an UI for some scripts and intend to use in the intranet, you can call external vbs scripts from a webpage.
For example:

<script language="VBScript">
<!--
Function XLS(fname)
Set WshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")
WshShell.Run("\\myserver\path\Utils\Xlsole.vbs """ & fname & """")
Set WshShell = Nothing
End function
-->
</script>

Of course, this can be implemented in JavaScript as well.

It is also possible to port your vbs code to IE vbscript, if it doesn't use too advanced features.

Provided the user is set up to allow it, which most won't be. Most vbs scripts call features that aren't normally allowed in the browser.

Since it is meant as an UI for some external VBScript, it is most likely will be set up on a fixed number of machines, so the additional step to to lower the security for intranet zones makes no sense.
I'm also using the script above in the intranet, as a part of GUI for an external VBScript.

Different answers were given and the asker didn't pick either. If the asker holds his/her choice back, I recommend to assume that the question is self-answered, therefore PAQ this question with no refund.
