Black Ice Software - December 13, 2016
Printer Driver version 14.76 is released!
Upload converted document directly to the Web with HTTP and HTTPS!
Black Ice Software has released version 14.76 of the Printer Driver. This version includes new capabilities to upload documents to web servers using HTTP and HTTPS protocol.
By using the new Upload to Web feature, users can send the converted documents to a specified web address with POST requests, which is the most common solution to upload documents to a website.
The new Upload to Web feature is capable to send parameters to the web address when uploading a document, allowing users and administrators to validate the uploader by Username and Password.
The Upload to Web feature comes with an optional silent mode, allowing users to upload the converted documents to the web in the background without any user interaction.
In order to upload converted documents to a web server, one will need a webpage which receives and saves the uploaded documents to the web server. For example solutions, please refer to the ASP.NET and PHP sample websites on the following link.
