Inet.execute(,"CD" .. not working?!?

When i use the CD command for inet's execute property i find that it ALWAYS returns back an error indicating it cant find the desired directory i want ie.

text1.text = "/home/tempest/"
Inet1.Execute , "CD " & text1.text

When i use cuteftp and give it a command to pass to the ftp site and pass it the CD command i find that it repeats this error.  I do notice however that Cuteftp uses CWD instead to move through dirs...but the execute property doesnt mention having this feature.  when i type it anyway making my line read:

Inet1.Execute , "CWD " & text1.text

it runs the line without an error from the remote site but now just sits in an infinite loop!!!

What gives...am i doing something wrong?

Oh and why is it that when i upload the file is always in uppercase...is there a way to make the uploaded file all in lowercase on the remote site?  Don't bother mentioning to put lcase() around my text1.text....i've tried.

Try these code, see if it works

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Inet1.URL = "168.9.5.127"
Inet1.UserName = "Administrator"
Inet1.Password = "zaq12wsx"
Inet1.Execute "CD ", "/NZ/"

End Sub

hi there,
thanks for the response, but when i try out your suggestion it doesnt work.
For that matter when using the execute you must give the URL as the first argument.
So when i took your line:
inet1.execute "CD ","/NZ/" i had to modify it to read something like this:

inet1.execute "ftp://168.9.5.127","CD \home /NZ/"

this is what i gather you were saying...when i tried it however it did nothing special...
It is weird why the CD command isnt working....i can pass it something like:

inet1.execute "ftp://168.9.5.127","CD \home"
or
inet1.execute "ftp://168.9.5.127","CD /home"

(assume that the directory: "home" exists) and it doesn't matter...the CD command just doesnt work.  The response from the remote host is "CANNOT FIND DIRECTORY".  I can type ANY directory and it wont find it...
 
AND just to top it off it even passes the command all in CAPITAL LETTERS....is there a way to send the entire command in lowercase?!?

THanks...

I answered the question (Q.10041311).  qwix was experiencing the exact problem with the "CD" command of the execute method of the ITC.  Check out Microsoft Knowledge Base Article ID: Q168766
Title: "BUG: Internet Transfer Control Fails on Case-Sensitive Server"
http://premium.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q168/7/66.asp 

The FIX:
Download and install Service Pack 3 at:
http://www.microsoft.com/vbasic/download/sp/ 

The service pack fixes other bugs as well.  The service pack is quite large in size (12.6 MB).
