C#.NET FTP Request Error

I am running the following code:

//Set up the FTP connection
FtpWebRequest ftpRequest = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(strFtpUri);
ftpRequest.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(strFtpLogin, strFtpPassword);

//Initiate the request and read the response
FtpWebResponse ftpResponse = (FtpWebResponse)ftpRequest.GetResponse();
Stream ftpResponseStream = ftpResponse.GetResponseStream();
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(ftpResponseStream, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8);

This works fine on my client but when I run it on Windows Server 2008 I recieve an error @ line:
--  FtpWebResponse ftpResponse = (FtpWebResponse)ftpRequest.GetResponse();

The error states "The Remote Name Could Not Be Resolved".  Any ideas?

I think the issues is Windows Server 2008 is not allowing connection to the FTP site.  Will check.

Nope.  Still does not work.  Works on the client but on Windows Server 2008 it is not working.  Any ideas?

can you please share your code and the parameters you are passing to connect to the ftp website
the error says could not resolve ftp - to me it means that you are just passing ftp as the ftp site name and not the fully qualified name
more details will definitely help

It was the set up of the Windows 2008 server that prevented the FTP connection.
