Upload Files to Web...

I've got an application I'm writing in visual studio for web-management purposes. The application is part of a larger application we have created with seperate sections for each of the day-to-day operations here at my company. The particular section I'm working on is for image additions, deletions, and replacement on our database driven website. Everything works fine other than the function to upload images to the FTP server. I have very limited knowledge on FTP and I don't need all the functionality of an FTP client. I simply want to be able to upload one image at a time to the server. I don't have a whole lot of points to offer, so I offered what I could afford. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Add a component named Microsoft Internet Transfer Control to your form,

  Inet1.RemoteHost = "ftp://www.duck.org"
  Inet1.URL = "ftp://www.duck.org/
  Inet1.UserName = "LoginName"
  Inet1.Password = "password"
  Inet1.Protocol = icFTP
  Inet1.Execute "ftp://www.duck.org/">ftp://www.duck.org/", _
    "PUT C:\TestFile.txt TestFile.txt"

Do a right click on toolbox and choose add...
Locate Microsoft Internet Transfer control

I'm using Visual Studio 2002 with VB.net and couldn't find that control anywhere, nor anyone who claims it's in any version of VB past VB 6.0
Thanks for the help though.

At least, all solutions posted here were for VB6 not .net!!!!
There is a .Net TA here, at EE, look at it.
