Hi,

I have this scenario:
I have an asp.net site where producers login to send large media files to a broadcasting company. They fill in a form and then they are supposed to upload a media file (a large file in mpeg2 format that can be between 5-10 GB).
We have a ftp-server receiving the files. What I would like is a way to authenticate and upload the file directly from the browser via the ftp protocol. I don't need a full blown ftp solution just an upload to the ftp server from the browser and an indication of the progress of the upload.

Is there any of you experts that now of or have a solution of how I can do this?

It is not good idea to upload large files from asp.net pages because if connection will be broken the user will need to upload file from very beginning and there is no way to report upload progress.

Some workaround here could be creating some ActiveX control with privileges to access user file system.

Hi and thanks for answer,

Do you know of some java applet or something then that can be integrated with the page, but is not an asp.net page and have a functionality like that of a ftp client.
