Hi Hannibal,

I don't think there are any built-in ways to do this with asp, but there are a few third-party components you can install and use. I've not tried any of them, but a quick Google brought up http://www.example-code.com/asp/gzip_compressString.asp and http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb...txtCodeId=6182 as looking good.

Also look at http://www.aspin.com and their list of components.

There are two free unzippers there.
