Application connecting to FTP Client Issue

Hello,
I am working on a C# application which connects to FTP client to upload and download files to and from the FTP server.
When I run the application, I receive "COMException occured" error. Error HRESULT E_Fail has been returned from a call to a COM component. The error code is -2147467259.
Here the code where the error occured:
try
                {
                    int connStat = transferEngineConnection.Connect();
                    transferEngineConnection.set_Option("CleanupAsync", 1);
                    transferEngineConnection.set_Option("ThrowError ", 1);
                    transferEngineConnection.set_Option("AutoCloseMethod ", 1);
                    transferEngineConnection.set_Option("AutoCloseDelay  ", 1);

                    logger.Info("Connection Status returned: " + connStat.ToString());
                    return true;
                }
                catch(Exception ex)
                {
                    logger.Info("Connect Call Failed for CuteFTP " + ex.Message + ex.StackTrace);
                    return false;
                }
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException occurred
  Message="Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component."
  Source="Interop.CuteFTPPro"
  ErrorCode=-2147467259

(1) dont use Cute ftp...  .NET 2.0 has it's own capability to use FTP right within the framework.. the CuteFTP (depending on the version you have) could be hindering the perfomance of your app by using Interop - AND old methods of transfer.
This is the MSDN developer reference for a example to how to use the FtpWebRequest namespace:

even i will recommend you to use the microsoft ftp classes that have come up with version 2.0 of the framework
here is a link of how to upload and download the files to and from the ftp server

The problem of connectivity between the application and the FTP client was solved by modifying  the configuration of the FTP client; one of the values of the configuration was FTPS which needs to be changed to FTP.
