Project Description


A simple job to write a filemaker post request, to enable upload and download of ebay file transfer files. The files are already created by PHP or filemaker, I just need a snippet of code for the post request written in the correct syntax to automate the posting of files, and I will use the code in my own scripts.

The ebay documentation is as clear as mud to me, and here is their instructions for a sample http post :

POST /path/to/upload/script HTTP/1.0

Connection: Keep-Alive

User-Agent: My Client App v1.0


[url removed, login to view]

Content-type: multipart/form-data;


Content-Length: 256


Content-Disposition: form-data; name="token"



Content-Disposition: form-data; name="file";

filename="[url removed, login to view]"

Content-Type: text/csv

... contents of [url removed, login to view] ...


I am hoping to be able to convert this command to a useable filemaker 11 script and have the base elements and Nexus web services plugins installed, that both support HHTP post requests, but I do not know the correct syntax to get this working.
