    Hi, Not really, only if you send it a stupidly large file, it will tie up your server for longer. Don't forget, if you are increasing the request length, you should also increase the timeout to prevent it being cut short. Regards Si

    No performance issues that I'm aware of - but as Simon mentioned, this means your server could be tied up for longer ... something to bear in mind in relation to denial of service attacks (if the attacker can send 8MB requests off to your server and grind it to a halt!) :)
