Try using curl to make the upload form the command line. In verbose mode, you can see all
the headers etc. and maybe you can spot what's going wrong, eg:

/usr/local/bin/curl --verbose -F uploadfile=@file.txt http://server/upload-page-url

where "uploadfile" is the "name" of the tag <input type="file"> (NB, the "@" is necessary
in front of the file name). If you need any other CGI parameters, add them with additional
"-F" options (eg, -F userid=joe, etc.)
