3 ways to go:

1. Using FTP, if you get access to your remote server, this will be the fastest way to go and of course if this method need your requirement. This requires server configuration.

2. Upload Form Submission, unfortunately, this method required you to select file one by one.. This requires script development.

3. Using Java Applet, where Applet is powerful enough to read your local directory structures and therefore the Applet can read the files available within a directory in your local machine. And then your Applet will do the uploading process. This requires script development.

i would highly suggest against activex. most people disable it. however if your site is being used by people who frequent it often enough to put it inside their trusted zone i suppose activex woudl work. it would also simplify the process quite nicely.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Actually an applet has the same issues as activex.  On our networks we don't allow anything that can access local assets.  JAVA is just as dangerous as activex.  The only difference is it requires a little more skill, and you don't have kiddie hacker sites full of hacks and exploits.

I would recommend if your using ASP to take a look at ASPupload, we use it for commercial use and its brilliant, very efficient easy to work with and gets the job done. take a look at www.aspupload.com

this should sort your issue out, don't go with activex its a security nightmare and MS dependant, nor java.

hope this help, they do a trial of the app.

ASPupload (ie, xupload) IS an activex object.  Having said that it seems pretty stable and it's definitely a nice piece of work.

Of course you'll need your users to be running ie and not be deterred by xp service pack 2's warnings etc.

sorry my mistake.  I've been using xupload for 3 months now and never even noticed asupupload on their site.

ASPUpload is used on the server side, so client's configuration (regarding ActiveX) is irrelevant.
