DWORD UsernameLen = 20, PassLen = 20;
BOOL temp2;

m_pInetSession = new CInternetSession( NULL, 1, INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_PROXY,  "firewall.sasol.com:80", NULL, 0 );
m_pInetSession = new CInternetSession( );
if (m_pInetSession->SetOption( INTERNET_OPTION_USERNAME, (LPVOID) Username, UsernameLen ) == FALSE) return;
if (m_pInetSession->SetOption( INTERNET_OPTION_PASSWORD, (LPVOID) Password, PassLen ) == FALSE) return;//QueryOption

m_pFtpConnection = m_pInetSession->GetFtpConnection( "","utilftp","sasol" );

Are you using a CERN proxy? WININET, the system DLL that actually implements the CFtpConnection object for MFC, turns out to not support FTP connections through CERN proxies.

You _can_ get the connection to work through the proxy, though; you'll have to use the INTERNET_FLAG_RAW_DATA flag in the dwFlags parameter.  The technique you'll need to use is documented in the Microsoft KnowledgeBase.  Please see the article at http://www.microsoft.com/kb/articles/q166/9/61.htm
