Server To Server File Transfer
This script shows how to use XMLHTTP to transfer a file (or list of files) from a remote server (or domain) to the server that this script is running on. This example also checks to see if the files exists. If it does, it deletes the existing file then creates the new file. Otherwise, it will not create the new file.

Here is the ASP code for this script:


  'Create xmlHTTP Object

   Set xmlHTTP = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")

    'Save To Folder on this server

    SaveToFldr = Server.MapPath("SomeFolder")

    'Create a list of files to retrieve

    TheURLS = "|" & _

              "|" & _


    'Create File List Array

    UrlArr = Split(TheURLs,"|")

    'Cycle through File List

    For x = 0 To UBound(UrlArr)

       'Save As File Name

       SaveAsFile = SaveToFldr & "/" Right(UrlArr(x),Len(UrlArr(x))-InstrRev(UrlArr(x),"/"))

       'Get File "GET", UrlArr(x), false

       'Send Request


       'Check to see if file is available

       If xmlHttp.Status = "200" AND xmlHttp.Status <> "404" then

          'Create Datastream object to save the file

          set DataStream = CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")

          'Open Datastream


          'Set type to binary

          DataStream.Type = 1

          'Create bianry datastream of the file

          DataStream.Write xmlHTTP.ResponseBody

          DataStream.Position = 0

         'Set the File System Object, so we can check to see if it already exists.

  	  set FSO = Createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

  	 'If the file already exists, delete it

         if FSO.FileExists(SaveAsFile) then

            Fso.DeleteFile SaveAsFile

         End If

	 set FSO = Nothing

         'Write the file to the location on the server

          DataStream.SaveToFile SaveAsFile

          'Close Datastream


          'Delete Datastream object

          set DataStream = Nothing

       End If


    'Delete xmlHTTP Object

    Set xmlHTTP = Nothing
