I am working my way through a piece of code debugging it

   


        Dim FTPServer As String = "ftp://ukftp.alyanto.com"
        Dim UserName As String = "alyanto"
        Dim Password As String = "expertsexchange"
        Dim FilePath As String = "C:\Users\tongcheeka\Documents\Adware\ScannerImport\FTPExport\Bad00021032014141633.csv"

       

        Try
            Dim oURI As New System.Uri(FTPServer)

            Dim fwr As FtpWebRequest = DirectCast(FtpWebRequest.Create(oURI), FtpWebRequest)
            fwr.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile
            fwr.Credentials = New NetworkCredential(.UserName, Password)
            fwr.Proxy = Nothing
            fwr.UsePassive = False
            Dim reader As New FileStream(oFTP.SourceFile, FileMode.Create, FileAccess.ReadWrite)
            Dim buffer(Convert.ToInt32(reader.Length - 1)) As Byte
            reader.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)
            reader.Close()
            fwr.ContentLength = buffer.Length
            Dim stream As Stream = fwr.GetRequestStream
            stream.Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)
            stream.Close()

        Catch ex As Exception
            Debug.Print(ex.Message)
            Throw ex
        End Try

Open in new window


At Dim stream As Stream = fwr.GetRequestStream it throws this error

 'The requested URI is invalid for this FTP command.  

The team I am with believe the URL we are using is correct.  I can use it to navigate to using the URL via windows.  I suspect it is some combination of the URL and file name I need but I keep finding myself at a dead end.

Can someone make suggestion on how I might resolve the issue?

Include the target filename in your URL before you create the FtpWebRequest.

e.g.

Dim FTPServer As String = "ftp://ukftp.alyanto.com/somefile.data"

Open in new window
