I am trying to upload a simple test file from my local hard disk to my server. I am using the following code:

Sub UploadFile()
 Inet1.RemoteHost = "ftp://www.abc.com"
 Inet1.UserName = "username"
 Inet1.Password = "password"
 Inet1.Protocol = icDefault  ' I have also tried http and ftp
 Inet1.Execute "www.abc.com", "PUT C:\junk\test.txt"
End Sub

Private Sub Inet1_StateChanged(ByVal State As Integer)
Text1 = Text1 & State & vbCrLf
  If State = icResponseCompleted Then
   Text1 = Text1 & "Done"
  End If
End Sub

I get the following string of States : 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,12,Done

However, the file does not appear on my server. In fact, even if I change my username/password to garbage, it sill produces the same sequence of States. It is somehow ignoring my UN/PW and not ever really uploading anything.

I am able to use a WS_FTP to upload the file with no problems so I know my UN/PW are correct.

Please tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thank you. That link showed me how to fix my code. Here is the working code:

Sub UploadFile()
 Inet1.RemoteHost = "ftp://www.abc.com"
 Inet1.UserName = "username"
 Inet1.Password = "password"
 Inet1.URL = "ftp://username:password@www.abc.com"
 Inet1.Protocol = icFTP
 Inet1.Execute , "Put C:\junk\test.txt /username/abc.com/test.txt"
End Sub

Sub DownloadFile()
 Inet1.RemoteHost = "ftp://www.abc.com"
 Inet1.UserName = "username"
 Inet1.Password = "password"
 Inet1.URL = "ftp://username:password@www.abc.com"
 Inet1.Protocol = icFTP
 Inet1.Execute , "Get " & _
        "/username/abc.com/test.txt C:\junk\test1.txt"
End Sub
