I'm trying to send a file using the following block of code.  How do I send a file to a specific folder on the server using this code?

' Sample Call
dim sourceFileName as string
dim targetfileName as uri

SendFile(sourceFileName, targetfileName)

   Shared Sub SendFile(sourcefileName As String, targetfileName As Uri)
      request = DirectCast(FtpWebRequest.Create(targetfileName), FtpWebRequest)

      With request
         .Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile
         .UsePassive = True
         .UseBinary = True
         .KeepAlive = True
      End With

      Using fileStream As FileStream = File.OpenRead(sourcefileName)
         Dim buffer As Byte() = New Byte(fileStream.Length - 1) {}

         fileStream.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)

         With request.GetRequestStream()
            .Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)
            .Close()
         End With

         response = request.GetResponse
      End Using
   End Sub

The URI that you pass in to the FtpWebRequest.Create should have the specific path you want to upload to. For example, if you had file "test.txt" and you wanted it to go into the "DummyFiles" folder, then your request creation would look like:

FtpWebRequest.Create("ftp.example.com/DummyFiles/test.txt")

Actually, how is this different than your previous question?

I was using a 3rd Party product (FTP/.NET Library).  The syntax they used was quite different from what I'm seeing here.  I guess a lot of this stuff was being taken care of behind the scenes.  I'm trying to learn how to use the built-in capabilities of .Net Framework 4.5 to accomplish the same thing.
