Background Intelligent File Transfer (BITS) Server Extension Overview

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) Server lets you configure a server that is running Internet Information Services (IIS) to allow BITS clients to perform background, resumable file uploads to IIS virtual directories. On completion of a file upload, the BITS Server can notify a Web application of the newly uploaded file, allowing the application to process the uploaded file. The Web application can then optionally reply to the client responsible for the upload.
