I'm afraid the details of that went straight over my head (though the concept looks bang-on). As I said I'm mainly Mac, so don't have any facility (or knowledge) to create Windows VB scripts, COM, or other stuff you mentioned. Unless you can point me at a downloadable script/COM object that is just a straight .exe file, and just works, and that I can send to client, I'm afraid this solution is way out of my league, and too complicated for this project (which is non-paying anyway). It does like like exactly the solution - a Windows version of my Applescript - but is about as frightening and in-elegant as I imagined the Windows solution would turn out to be... Thx anyway. | On 2002-02-17, Joel Lieberman said: | Maybe I'm missing somthing, but why not set up | anonymous FTP with permissions only for one folder. | That way no passwords are needed, but access is denied | to any other file system nodes. Joel Sadly I'm not in a position to do this, but agree this would be the simplest way to do it. The site in question is part of an multi-user account with an ISP, and opening up the password would allow access to other user's websites. That's why I was after a client-side FTP solution, that acted as a normal FTP upload client, but locked-in - and concealed - the relevant login, password and path to the server. | On 2002-02-16, Ken Kogler said: | Never heard of a client-side solution for something like this, but in | the past when I've been in this situation, I create a password-protected | page for the client and write an upload script that uses the <form> to | post the data to the server. Ken I think that may be the best way forward in this case. I know how to do this ( I think), but for a project of this scale, if I could have found a simpler, off-the-shelf solution I would have prefered it.

So, looks like the best way forward is to write a script for the user server-side, on a password protected page, that brokers and controls the upload process usin a normal browser-based interface. Somehow, I thought I'd end up there... <grin> Regards Andy PS. Apologies for the inital double post; email client went screwy.
