In my asp.net C# web application i am using telerik upload control to upload the image or file on server with ftp.
My Code is as follows:
ftpfilepath = AppFunctions.GetFTPUrl() + AppFunctions.GetFileUploadPath() + filename;
                        ftpWebRequest = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(ftpfilepath);
                        ftpWebRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile;
                        ftpWebRequest = AppFunctions.GetNetworkCredentials(ref ftpWebRequest);
                        streamReader = new StreamReader(uploadedFile.InputStream);
                        byte[] fileContents = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(streamReader.ReadToEnd());
                        ftpWebRequest.ContentLength = fileContents.Length;

                        stream = ftpWebRequest.GetRequestStream();
                        stream.Write(fileContents, 0, fileContents.Length);
                        ftpWebResponse = (FtpWebResponse)ftpWebRequest.GetResponse();

When I run it on my local machine, it works fine, but as soon as i uploaded it on the production server, it gives error as :
Error Occured : Request for the permission of type 'System.Net.WebPermission, System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.

I also tried
<location allowOverride="false">
      <trust level="Full" originUrl=""/>

but then it gives error as :
Error Message: This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the site administrator has locked access to this section using <location allowOverride="false"> from an inherited configuration file.

Please advice

you have to give write permission to the user that uses asp.net processes for that folder.

Thanks jkofte,

The problem is we are using Godaddy for website hosting and as per server administrator there is no iis user to give permission to the folder.

maybe you should contact their support and ask them to give write permission to that folder for asp.net worker process.
or you may change it from the control panel.
