I have searched Network Solutions site but can't find a good developer's section.  GoDaddy uses ASPUpload.  I need to set up a programmatic upload facility for a client.  I've tried code for ASPUpload and Softartisans FileUp, but those don't work.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Do not need not installed components.

Have a look here for an example.
You will need to have the rest of the scripts

I am on Network Solutions.
Have been for a few months.
I have designed several sites that are implementing this Upload script.
It is easy to use and configure.
The main customer that i have that uses it nearly every day, loves the fact that they can
Upload many images (or) files at a single time.

In my test, I upload 100 images, and it did it without any issues or problems.

Let me know if you need assistance with it.

(Do not use the .dll script feed on Network Solutions, use the pure script feed)
have a good one.

Here's the problem I have with this script and I fought with it a few weeks ago.  When the file is uploaded, I also need to have the description and the file name written to the database.  I managed to get the file to upload properly, but I can't seem to get the data written properly.  Any ideas?  Thanks a million for your help.

You upload file(s)
Then you edit the images through another page.
It is a 2 step process.

So.
You need to have the Upload script to do the uploads.
Then have the imageEdit.asp page to edit the properties of the image(s).
Let me know if you need any issue.

You have to be careful at what you use.
Example.
The script that I provided works across all platform, through Window 7 IE8
A lot fo the other scripts break on IE7.
So make sure that you do some testing on all browsers to make sure that it works.
Like Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari and so forth.
As something that works in one may not work in the other.

Have a good one.

humm.
Just found something that is not good if you are own a shared server (Network Solutions)
http://www.freeaspupload.net/freeaspupload/requirements.asp
[Server Settings]
File upload limit is 200kb. To fix this limit you have to edit the = MetaBase.xml
Which is located on the server-side.
_-------
Netowork solutions does not allow this type of hosting.
I spoke to them a while back about another issue (Email Components)
And they stated that since they had people contacting them all the time that
They crashed serveral of the servers that they now do not do anything on the server side.
Everything is setup to run with what they have.

Good Luck
