if the line you are using works in windows explorer address bar but not with the TransferText method then I don't think you can do it directly.

The original link requires you to make a .scr file (plain text file with .scr extension instead of .txt) with the FTP commands you want to execute.

Here is another link that contains a complete object model that you can reference in your database and then execute the commands from within your code.
