Hi

I am re-designing a solution that I had before in Access 2k into Visual Studio.NET
In the old program, I had ftp tasks to get, put and compare files in a ftp server. The old program uses DOS shell routines to perform those tasks and what basically does is to connect to the ftp server, change directories, downloads all text files from those different directories and close the connection when it's done. I would like to include those ftp tasks into the code instead of the DOS shells. I know is posible to do it but I don't have the expertise.

At the end, I would like to only call thye ftp-like commands as functions:

Sub Function mget () '......etc...

End function

and so on


open
user
pwd
mget
cd
put
lcd

Below is small sample of what I actually do with the DOS shell:

'-------Get my files-----------
cd <remote directory>
lcd <local directory>
mget *

This is very urgent and if someone could include ready-to-use code I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!

I used Chilkat's Free FTP control for my FTP problems. Works great and its very simple to use.

Soory for the delay of my response, but I needed some time to review all the answers to try to be as fair as possible.

Anyways, thank you all!

The samples you suggested were very helpful!

tpwells:
Sorry, I'm not interested on buying but in developing. No money to pay licensing fees to someone else's app. =(

Thanks for the ad though

Maybe you didn't look at the linked page but Chilkat clearly states that the FTP control I linked to is completely free for commercial and non-comercial use completely royalty free(or never would have posted it, I hate paying for things you can do for free) :) . And its easy to use and very self explainitory.

tpwells,

You are right, it's 'free' to use, but I considered 'paying' for 'free' marketing when I use a control that will say Chilkat instead of my own name or brand =)

Thanks though
