    First off, sorry if this is the wrong forum for this, it seemed the best fit :)

    I use my remote desktop (XP Pro) to connect to a web server. Once I am logged in and open up IIS and choose the website I want to edit, how do I upload a file that I have stored locally? Sorry if this is unclear, Im not sure how else to word it.

    Basically, I made some changes to a html page on the server and I need to log in to our server through remote desktop and upload the file, overwriting the current one. Thanks much.

    You can't because I don't think remote desktop has a file upload utility. You don't need to be in the management console to upload files to any given web site just put them in the web sites directory in Windoze Explorer.

    Thanks for the reply Rockn, but Im not sure I understand. This is a dedicated server and the only way to access it is by remotely dialing in to the IIS. In the IIS I can easily navigae the site and see all the files, delete them, view properties, etc, etc, but I dont know how to replace a file or upload a new one. I am sure it is something really simple that I am missing. Thanks again.
