A simpel question:

Say I have an URL to an image e.g. www.easyblog.dk/DSC00603.jpg. How do I "copy" that imagefile an save it on my webserver using normal ASP

no it's rather a download. I have a link to an image which I want to display on my page. But I do not want to refer to it in its current location. I want to copy that image to my own server from what webserver its on and save it on my own server and then display it. So you could say I want my ASP script to download a file from an URL location...

yeah it'S the same thing

an upload script can do the trick, u have just to specify the file location (local or on the internet) in your case the file is already on the internet

An upload script doesn't make sense in this case.

I don't work with ASP, but if you're open to other options, here's a perl command that will download the file.

C:\>perl -MLWP::Simple -e "getstore('http://www.easyblog.dk/DSC00603.jpg', 'DSC00603.jpg')"


Here's the same thing in script form instead of command line.

#!c:/perl/bin/perl.exe

use LWP::Simple;
getstore('http://www.easyblog.dk/DSC00603.jpg', 'DSC00603.jpg');

Okay I found a way... The upload thing seemed overkill and requires the use of a component on the webserver. So in my search for components on my webserver I found the aspHTTP component. It does the job easily:

      Set HttpObj = Server.CreateObject("AspHTTP.Conn")
      HttpObj.Url = arrImg(i)
      HttpObj.FollowRedirects = True
      HttpObj.RequestMethod = "GET"
      HttpObj.UserAgent = "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows NT; DigExt)"
      HTTPObj.SaveFileTo = server.MapPath(filepath & filename)
      HttpObj.GetURL
      Set HttpObj = nothing

And its saved...

I'm handing out the points anyways - gonna split them.

Thanks for your time guys...
