[thelist] ASP file upload problems

Why can't your sys admin make a virtual directory for the folder you were
uploading the images to (the one outside the web root) and only grant read
access to that dir?  IIRC the I_USR account supercedes the local NT file
permissions in that scenario.


You're uploading to a folder: C:\folder\outside\of\root\images
	-> this folder has no read/write/anything access via the web server right
You map a virtual dir to that folder named "images" or something like that
with read-only access through IIS.  The permissions in IIS supercede those
set locally on the box.

Seems like that should work.  HTH!
