Hi Devin,

Before using the post command, execute the following line:

set the httpHeaders to "Content-type: application/binary" & cr & \
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary" & cr & \
"Content-Length: <length of your data in bytes>"

Let us know if this works for you.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
