FTP Project

I need to build a small VB.NET application that will basically open a remote FTP site, see if a file exist there and download it to a local directory.

1. What control/component should I use and is there any sample about it available ?

2. Is there an function that will be able to look up a remote ftp folder to see if a file exist ?

Thanks,
LVL 4

Thanks for reply, but I need an VB.NET sample where I can see how to retrieve an info about a remote FTP file and a folder.

If you really want to hunt for a number of examples, look for FTWWebRequest and FTPWebResponse (part of the system.net namespace)
