Are there any .NET FTP options available? Are there any
commercial/open source FTP products for Windows Server 2003? I'd like
to have the ability to have a web page execute FTP files transfers.

Specifically, what are you trying to do? Do you want to provide a link lke
ftp://ftp.server.com/filename.ext? Or do you want to initiate a file download
from the web server  using the ftp  protocol?

Answer #2    Answered By: Katrina Edwards     Answered On: Apr 12

I want to fetch/put files to/from the web server  machine via FTP,
triggered by/through a web page. I don't want to initiate FTP
transfers to visitors.

There do not seem to be any FTP related classes built into the framework.
If there is a way to do what he is asking, I would be interested in learning
how myself.

The Code Project has a posting about this that might be a good start...


Also, www.vbip.com <http://www.vbip.com> has a lot of internet programming
articles -- mostly in classic vb - but they're starting to get more info
covering vb.net.

How do I use the
project files? I don't have VS .NET. Do I need to compile them in VS
.NET? If so, can I get someone to compile them for me (if legal)? I
don't to violate any license agreements or break any laws.

Are there any other "cool" .NET classes out there a newbie should know about?

I'm I missing something? Are you saying you want to make it a two step process
in stead of one: Step one, get the file from the ftp  server to the web server;
Step two, send the file to the client pc from the web server. Instead of a
single step of the client clicking on a link that downloads directly from the
ftp server.

Answer #7    Answered By: Edward Jones     Answered On: Apr 12

No, I'm not saying that. I want the server  to execute ftp  actions
that are independent of any visitor/client. For instance, I want to
send a file on the web server to an ftp server(s) using a web

But something like you mentioned could be useful when a visitor has
no FTP capabilities or FTP ports are blocked, etc..Have the web
server fetch files and make them available via http download.

You need to download both of the zips from the posting -- if you unzip them
into the same directory - they should extract proper-like so you can open
kcommon.sln & it'll open both projects. As for using the code - you'll need
to build the kcommon dll into an assembly - which you can then refer to
using the "using KCommon.Net.FTP;" statement in your code. This example
shows the object being used in a c# windows  form - but I belive you can use
it in a web form too - but I'm not positive about that as I'm also a .net
newbiean. If you download the .net SDK you can compile the project into an
assembly at the command prompt -- and the sdk's free so I'd assume there's
no license agreements for someone to send you a compiled assembly of the
project. If you'd like that - lemme know & I can attach that to a direct
delivered email.

I would very much appreciate it if you would email me a compiled assembly.

I know it's asking a lot, but I would also be appreciative if you
could explain how to compile it at the command prompt using the SDK,
if it's not too inconvenient. I've been using the SDK and I found the
compiling instructions, But I don't quite understand how it would
work in this case.
