    Default Pulling files from remote site

    Im trying to pull a set of files across a vpn on a timed/automated (or manual) basis using an asp page or vb script. The filesystemobject command doesnt seem to accomplish this by using //<remotecomputername>/<path>/<path> format. Would a mapped drive (which is very slow) or a different approach work?

    Hello! You can use a third party component to grab information off other servers using HTTP requests. I wrote up an article on 4Guys demonstrating how to use such a free component to grab files off of other web servers.<BR><BR>Grabbing Information from other Servers<BR>http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/071199-1.shtml<BR><BR>Happy Programming!
