I have a VB6 application that uses HTTPs to send files over the internet. The files contain simple ASCII text - not to any XML or HTML format standard.
Everything normally works well until I POST a file that contains the '&' (ampersand) character; these files get truncated at the receiving end - only the data before the '&' is apparently received. I am pretty sure that this can be rectified by using a particular 'Content-Type'. Currently the code does not specify a content-type and I am not sure what the default is.
Any clues gratefully received.
