Program hangs on stream.close()/stream.dispose()

Hi Experts,

I use Stream.IO.Stream to upload a file via ftp. The file uploads successfully, but when I call stream.close() (vb.net) the program just hangs without throwing any error or exception. I tried just using stream.dispose() but same thing happens. This problem occurs at only one of our many clients, the only main difference in the environment I can see is that Norton 2014 antivirus and firewall are installed at the client but I disabled it before uploading.

Have you tried viewing the raw TCP conversation that occurs during this process using something like Wireshark? Is there any difference in the conversations which take place among the various locations?

Outside of that, I have seen across the web suggestion of calling the Abort  method first--assuming, of course, that you are using the FtpWebRequest class.
