FTP client and national characters
Posted on 2004-10-28
I'm writing an FTP client in VB.NET for educational purpose, so using an third party FTP client is not an option.
I'm having problem with sending the CWD command (Change Working Directory) to the FTP Server running IIS 6.
It works as expected with non-national characters, but when i try to change to a directory with national characters in the name, it doesn't work!
The server replies with code 550, file not found.
I've tried sending the command and directory name encoded in both UTF-7 and UTF-8, without success.
How do i make this work with national characters?
Any help appreciated!
