FTPCommand - command not understood

I am writing a VB 6.0 app that will read commands from a file much like FTP.exe does. It will of course be using the wininet.dll. The only one I am having a problem with is the FTPCommand. Code is as follows:
Public Function SendCommand(ByVal strCommand As String) As Boolean

Dim hFile As Long

strCommand = "PUT test.txt"
If FtpCommand(hConnection, False, Me.TransferType, strCommand, 0, hFile) = False Then
ErrorOut Err.LastDllError, "SendCommand"
SendCommand = False
Exit Function
Else
SendCommand = True
End If

End Function

Where strCommand is actually read in from a file so it could be any valid FTP command.  It recognizes the "quit" command but does not allow me to perform the "PUT". Is my syntax incorrect? Please advise.

To send files, you should use FtpPutFile, not FtpCommand
