I currently have a nice FTP app using FtpWebResponse. Now I want to try C# Socket programming for a FTP client.

Q. Do you recommend Asynchronous or Synchronous sockets?

The synchronous Client code I've seen seems to appears to lockout any other FTP clients requests. Whereas asynchronous Client code seems more server friendly. Your thoughts please.

I don't think FtpWebResponse is either asynchronous or synchronous.
