Default Image Upload to different domain


I have a question concerning the fileupload server control
I have a centralised CMS in which I allow people to upload their files to the server.

I would like to upload the files to the different websites of these clients in stead

How can I do this ? since asp.net does not allow files to be uploaded other than a folder on the same server ?
How can I enter a virtual directory in de saveAs method that is from a different domain.

Help is greatly appreciated

You can't do that. You can only save files locally or using a UNC path.

A few other options:

1. Accept the file and FTP it to the remote server

2. Accept the file and pass it the remote server by calling a web service on the remote machine.

3. Accept the file and trigger a URL on the remote server that in turn fetches the image from your machine.

Hope this helps,
