HTTP upload instead of FTP is a fine answer to part of the problem. FTP.exe would work to upload just the file. However, I need to associate user input, for example a free-text description of the file contents, with the file and upload the file to our server.
I am suggesting using a browser in order to avoid user installation of a program; allows easy control and modification of the HTML page the client uses to upload the file.
So the rough script for my project looks like:
start iexplore http: //mywebsite.com?path= pathname&file= filename
(spaces intentionally added)
where mywebsite.com is a page that is built to accomplish uploading [pathname]/[filename] along with a user description of the contents of the file.
Basically my question is, is this feasible / would it work?
