putting a file to a web server

Good idea, but I don't want to have to deal with all the permission settings
for each and every directory I want to upload to. Potential security risk.
The directories are typically webpage directories I'm uploading to.

I don't think any public web server would allow PUT without
authentication even if it did support it.
put url "file:c:\test.txt" into url
and make sure you have the right permissions to upload files.

As to using ftp, why not upload it directly to the correct directory.
