What do you mean HTTP? You want a web based file uploader? Where are you putting the files? This needs to be made clear. – Josh K Feb 2 '10 at 13:53

Assuming you're not referring to plain form-based file uploads via your web browser, then I'm going to assume you're actually referring to HTTP uploads via WebDAV, Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning. See WebDAV - Wikipedia. It is supported by many web servers.

Windows already includes the capability to upload to WebDAV-enabled HTTP locations. You don't need special software. Windows refers to WebDAV shares as "web folders" and you can access them with Windows Explorer.

A web browser should suffice for regular form-based HTTP uploads, we'd need more details on the situation to give you a better answer.
