Hi all..
    I need to upload a file (.csv/.txt) from my computer to another computer? I have a set of codes here which will upload my files to my local drive. I've tried ammending the "Server.MapPath (uploads)....." codes to the IP address of another computer, however it doesnt work. Is there any way to solve this problem? I glad to accept any advices

My HTML codes (uploadData.asp)
<form name="uploadData" id="uploadData" method="post" encType="multipart/form-data" action="uploadFile.asp" onSubmit="return validate()">
  <input name="File1" type="file" class="tdtext" id="File1">
  <p>    <br/>
    <input name="Upload" type="submit" class="tdtext" id="Upload" value="Submit" >
    <input name="clear" type="reset" class="tdtext"" id="clear" value="Clear">

My ASP codes
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="include/clsUpload.asp"-->

Dim objUpload
Dim strFileName
Dim strPath

' Instantiate Upload Class
Set objUpload = New clsUpload

' Grab the file name
strFileName = objUpload.Fields("File1").FileName

' Compile path to save file to
strPath = Server.MapPath("Uploads") & "\" & strFileName

' Save the binary data to the file system
objUpload("File1").SaveAs strPath

' Release upload object from memory
Set objUpload = Nothing
File has been saved in file system.<BR>
View this file:<BR>
<A href="Uploads\<%=strFileName%>">Uploads\<%=strFileName%></A>

in ASP while uploading we will be uploading the files to the server only.

to do what you are intending we can do a round about way

map the folder of the other system in your server and then point your asp file to upload the files to that folder.
hope it works and solves your problem

open up network neighbourhood --> open the computer which you want to access --> open the filder which you want to map --> right click and say "map network drive"  --> give it a name
