Hi, I'm using VS2005, .net 2.0 and created a stand-alone windows application.  I need to connect to Unix server on the network to read in a couple of files from it.  I also am required to provide the user with all those protocols and FTP for user to select.  I found a FTPWebRequest class for .net 2.0 but haven't figured out how to specified the name of the file that I want to down load.  But, are there classes or functions I can use for these other protocols?  Any sample codes on how to use them?  Thank you.

Here's a codeproject sample (love that site really =P) with a simple FTP example.

The "problem" with the FtpWebRequest is that it's simply a protocol wrapper for ftp. Any actual functionality you will have to add yourself. I'm sure you can also find other implementations for other protocols if you look around a bit.
