The underlying connection was closed: The server committed a protocol violation

I was uploading my file using below code,it works fine but some time it throws this error"The underlying connection was closed: The server committed a protocol violation" and stop the process ,when i run it again it upload file with out any issue.

One thing i noticed,if i run this process to upload multiple files then i get this error sometime,if i do less than 5 files then it works fine,any idea where and what i have to look in to it.

I was searchin google nothing found solid solution for this,even one of the msdn blog saying its a bug in FTPwebrequest but not sure.

Thanks in Advance

Not sure if this is the issue, but I noticed in your comments that you want to read in 2kb (2 * 1024 = 2048) increments, but you are actually reading in 4kb increments (4 * 1024 = 4096). There could also be a size/time duration issue as you state that this occurs more frequently with multiple files uploads. You can test this by comparing the total size of the files and playing with files of different sizes.

Try changing the KeepAlive property to true.
