upstream compression ?

    Using ASP.NET 2.0.

    The HTTP compression that comes with IIS 6.0 is great for compression
    downstream.
    However, there doesn't seem to be any standard way of compressing upstream
    (eg. on postback, to reduce size of ViewState etc).

    Does anyone use any compression solutions for reducing the amount of network
    traffic going upstream ?

    You may find solutions that involve the installation of software on
    both the server-side and client-side, but that doesn't solve the
    problem when dealing with Internet users.

    Most web applications are optimized by reducing the amount of data
    transferred - such as by disabling the viewstate for unnecessary
    controls. Besides, HTTP compression isn't supported by all devices/
    browsers so in some cases, it's the only way to go.

  3. Lets clear the definitions first....
    Am I correct in my assumption that
    Upstream - goes from browser to server...
    Downstream - goes from server to browser...

    Obviously you have little or no control over browser and the way it send
    information...
    You can though have your own serialization for ViewState thus compressing it
    on a fly. Thus reducing the amount of data that goes Upstream..
