Copy files between two web servers...

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Matthew Moran, Aug 2, 2006.

  1. I have a need to have a web server (windows based) grab files each week from
    a linux based server - hosted elsewhere. I cannot use UNC paths.

    I want to have a script (.asp/asp.net) on the windows server that I would
    provide a list of files to copy. The script would then copy the listed files.

    The problem is that the using a filestream and copyto runs into an error
    with URI paths.

    This will be a substantial amount of data each week. I don't want to copy
    it locally and then back up to the windows web server. I want/need the copy
    to be directly between the two servers.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Are the two servers on the same network?

    If so, why not just use FSO?....and if not, would FTP/RSync do? (I *believe*
    you can get RSync for Windows)
