SFTP file transfer using Vb.Net

I am working on VS 2012, Vb.Net and transferring / creating a .csv file in the Linux server through SFTP Connection. I have two options, either to go with Chilkat SFTP dll or with SecureFX sftp file transfer.

As our existing project which takes the data in a  byte array variable and creates the file in the Linux Server using FTP connection, we decided to use the existing functions and change the syntax only for SFTP. So, we are not transferring the file. We are creating a file in the Linux Server using SFTP connection.

Using this sample code, I am able to WriteFileBytes in the Linux Server :

http://www.example-code.com/vbdotnet/sftp_writeBinary.asp

But what happens is the file is written in the Root directory of the server. \home\<User_Id>

\home\<User_id> is the Root directory for Linux

and for windows this will be C:\<User_Id>

Once the file is created, i have to move the file from Root Directory to our Specified file location.

Using this sample code : http://www.example-code.com/vbnet/ssh_exec.asp

My question is, Is it difficult to Transfer or Write file in Any Servers ( Linux or Windows ) to a specified file location ???

If possible, What would be the steps i have to follow to directly go to the specified file location ?

@Eric, Thank you !! I am aware about basics mentioned in the link. I have already developed the prototypes using Chilkat sftp and SecureFX sftp.

My Question is, Irrespective of whatever third party dll's we implement in the .Net Project, when we do the File Transfer, Do the files will be transferred only to the Root directory of the user's sftp authentication (Or), Files can be transferred to any where by mentioning the absolute Path ??

@Eric, My understanding from you is, Nothing to do with SFTP in Linux Server. It's all about Third Party Tools. So we can transfer the file directly to any specific folder in the Linux Server through SFTP connection.

Am i right ???

it will also depends on the permission you have on that server. many times, s/ftp users are very limited to specifics folders on the server.
