I am using the CuteFTP Pro 8 interface to manually transfer files from my local directory to a remote site that I have permissions for.

Can this be done programatically?

Could you give me references?

Thanks,

You need to write a Visual Basic Script as described in the docs http://help.globalscape.com/help/cuteftppro8/index.htm#About_the_Transfer_Engine.htm

It will take a while to learn how to use the transfer engine.

For a given example:

Set MySite = CreateObject("CuteFTPPro.TEConnection")

MySite.Protocol = "FTPS_IMPLICIT "

MySite.Host = "ftp.ftp.net" >

MySite.Port = 990

MySite.Login = "username"

MySite.Password = "password"

MySite.Connect

Can C# be used?

Can this be placed in the code behind file?

I called CuteFTP support.  Use of the transfer engine and coding is not supported in Windows 7.

What other FTP client software is available that can be programatically controlled?

Here is how it is done using Code Behind:


protected void cmdUploadFiles_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // Upload files from the local machine to the FTP Site

    // Get the object used to communicate with the server.
    {
        FtpWebRequest UploadRequest;
        StreamWriter UploadStreamWriter;
        //StreamReader UploadStreamReader;
        string strUriTarget = "ftp://ftp.StockPickerMax.com/Data/";

        // Get source and destination file names
        string[] strFileTarget;
        string[] strArrayTarget = new string[3];
        strArrayTarget[0] = strUriTarget + "AMEX.txt";
        strArrayTarget[1] = strUriTarget + "NASDAQ.txt";
        strArrayTarget[2] = strUriTarget + "NYSE.txt";

        string[] strFileName;
        string[] strArraySource = new string[3];
        strArraySource[0] = "AMEX.txt";
        strArraySource[1] = "NASDAQ.txt";
        strArraySource[2] = "NYSE.txt";

        string strSourceBase = "C:\\Develop\\Apps\\StockPro\\";
        string strSourcePath = strSourceBase + "Data\\";

        string strResponse = "";
        string strSourceFile = "";
    
        // Transfer files
        for (int intCtr = 0; intCtr <= 2; intCtr++)
        {
            Uri UriFileTarget = new Uri(strArrayTarget[intCtr]); //Uri("ftp://ftp.StockPickerMax.com/Data/AMEX.txt");
            UploadRequest = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(UriFileTarget);
            UploadRequest.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("MyUserName", "MyPassword");
            UploadRequest.UseBinary = true;
            UploadRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile;
            
            // Copy the contents of the file to the request stream.
          
            strSourceFile = strSourcePath + strArraySource[intCtr];

            StreamReader SourceStream = new StreamReader(strSourceFile);
            byte[] fileContents = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(SourceStream.ReadToEnd());
            SourceStream.Close();
            UploadRequest.ContentLength = fileContents.Length;
            Stream RequestStream = UploadRequest.GetRequestStream();
            RequestStream.Write(fileContents, 0, fileContents.Length);
            RequestStream.Close();

            FtpWebResponse UploadResponse = (FtpWebResponse)UploadRequest.GetResponse();
            strResponse = UploadResponse.StatusDescription.ToString();
        }
