Dynamically Create a Web Page From an FTP Directory Listing

It's possible to dynamically create a Web page from an FTP directory listing of files with a particular extension. While there are sophisticated components (.DLLs) that you could add, you could also use the FileSystemObject and do a little filtering in the ASP script. Here's one approach that builds on the sample code found in the IIS 4.0 online help:
 
Sub ShowFolderList(folderspec)
Dim fs, f, f1, fc, s
Set fs = Server.CreateObject
	("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set f = fs.GetFolder(folderspec)
Set fc = f.Files
For Each f1 in fc
If instr(f1.name,".zip") then
response.write f1.name & "
" 
end if
Next
End Sub
ShowFolderList("e:\inetpub\ftproot")
