Default Not being able to post large chunk of data


We are trying to post some 20 MB data to a URL using MSXML.serverXMLHTTP. The other party (the URL) is receiving the data but we are not getting the success status 200 back. The browser displays two errors: "Internal Server Error" & "Operation Timed Out". Strangely, I think the first one is thrown by the server and the second one by client. I am not being able to understand where in the loop we are missing out.

We did everything like setting time out properties of serverXMLHTTP (10 min for all) and increasing the script running time of IIS etc.

We could not simulate the problem locally. i.e., when we posted to a asp page on local server, although it took some time, we got the status 200 back.

We are using ASP and IIS 5.0 over WINDOWS 2000 server.

Although I got some solutions over google for IIS6.0 such as modifying the IIS metabase config files, I could not find any solution for the prblem stated above.

Any suggestions?

you need to set maximum http request buffer size on the remote end.
