Description:HTTP protocol was designed to send one file per one request. Sometimes you will need to send more files - usually when a client selects several files for download and the files have to be delivered to the client. I created ASP sample which will do such task - the sample is located at http://www.motobit.com/help.
The sample uses command line compression (zip/arj) to pack more files to one file and then sends the zip/arj archive to client. Client must have some software to uncompress the data package (unzip, pkunzip, winzip ...). More detail...
