I can create a text file using ASP but I'm concerned about the security implications.
If I open up access in the folder properties to allow all users to be able to write to the folder am I creating the situation whereby a 'bad guy' can do my server some harm?
No, you do not need to do this with a script. In the folder properties, go to the security tab and give the user whose name begins with 'IUSR_' (and then the computer name) write privileges.
This is the account that ASP runs under.
Or, you will need to set it up so that you need to login to save a text file. You can do this in IIS (Allow anonymous access to false)
