I am trying to open an ftp connection using C# to read all files off of the ftp server.
I have logged in manually from dos using ftp so my credentials are correct. When the
last line of code below is executed, I get this error message:

"The requested URI is invalid for this FTP command"

Is there an expert who can help me with this?

// C# code below

WebClient request = new WebClient();

request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("us","klop");

Stream myStream = new request.OpenRead("ftp://10.333.12.333");
