I wonder if someone can help???<BR><BR>I have developed an intranet using IIS 4.0 with all the pages written in ASP. The authentication used for accessing the site is Challenge Response...that way we know who the user is and return all sorts of wonderful personalised information to them. So far so good and most things I have tried to do work.<BR><BR>The thing that is driving me nuts concerns the FileSystemObject.<BR><BR>It all started when I developed an email asp to all people to send emails from the intranet using CDONTS...works like a treat. Then I decided to add a function that would allow me to attach a file....for example our Terms of business are on the intranet and I want a link to call the email asp and attach the terms of business file to the email ready for sending.<BR><BR>The problem seems to occur because the Terms of business document is located on a different Server.<BR><BR>I chased my tail round in circles for days and in the end though I would try a different tact. I thought I would use the FSO to copy the file to the web server and then use CDONTS to attach the file as I have no problem attaching files that are located on the web server.<BR><BR>Sounds like a good plan?<BR><BR>Well I get the same problem..... I can't seem to copy a file from the network to the web server. I can copy a file that is on the web server to another location on the web server but I can't get the blasted files that I want which are located on another machine.<BR><BR>I get the old ASP 0177 Server ObjectVreate failed on the line that calls the FileCopy method.<BR><BR>I have trawled round the net looking for answers and found some stuff about permissions on the Anonymous IUSER account....but we are not using that account.....each user has there own account and all the users DO have permissions to see the file on the remote server... I can't even do it and I am a domain admin.<BR><BR>Anyway......here is a snippett of the code......<BR><BR>Set oFS = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")< BR>strFilename = oFS.GetFileName(strFile)<BR>oFS.CopyFile strFile, strnewfile<BR><BR>strFile being the variable holding the file name of the file on the remote server (inc path) and strnewfile being a variable holding the location of a temporary folder on the web server created in an earlier bit of code.<BR><BR>any advice would be appreciated.
