IIS 7.5 and POST

I have a device that will regularly transmit a small log file from my network via HTTP/POST to a GoDaddy hosted Windows 2012 web server. This is an anonymous file transfer (no credentials). When I make the attempt to transmit from the device I get a response below, which I've truncated:
    1/xmlupload: ReadUploadResult: Begin reading data from remote server.
    1/xmlupload: ReadUploadResult: Finished reading data from remote server.
    Status: HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request (Received 13 lines.)
    ERROR: Channel 1's Uploader failed to contact "http://22.56.82.102" because of a communications problem.

I am not familiar with how to enable IIS 7.5 to allow POST so this device can regularly drop log files to the server. I'm not even sure whether this is a POST configuration issue. Can anyone provide some guidance on this?

Here is the detail of the device and its data transfer specifics: http://www.obvius.com/sites/uat.obvius.com/files/TN24-DataCollection.pdf

You can't POST without a script on the server.  That PDF says that they have a sample PHP script that you can use.  Get it and put it on your hosting and you should be able to make it work then.

You are right. Based with that knowledge I will bail on my HTTP approach and go with an FTP solution (even though they discourage it).

Thanks!

FTP to a server on Godaddy will require a login.  They don't support anonymous logins.  Neither does any other public web hosting company.

Correct. That's what I ended up testing and found it to work well with this device.
