If you are just looking for general information, try Google first. I just read an interesting tutorial on implementing FTP support with the WebRequest Class. It is in C#, but I am sure you can find VB.NET links also.<BR><BR>http://www.aspalliance.com/253
for ftp you would want to use sockets... remoting is the act of invoking an object through tcp or some other network protocol (not necessarily on a different computer, but definitely on a different app domain) and calling methods on that object. ftp is opening a stream between a client and a server. there is a fine line but the System.Net namespace is what you would use for FTP.<BR><BR>Also, RFC 959 is FTP, along with some others but 959 is the main one<BR><BR>http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc959/2_Overview.html<BR><BR>i did it in vb.net but i've since lost the code :-( it was just a client that uploads files, no full interaction but it was all we needed.
Excellent! thank you for that, at least I have a starting point. What I would really like to do is upload a file to my site using the standard classes and then FTP (in the background) that file to another web server. If ever you find that code I would appreciate seeing it :-)<BR><BR>Thanks again<BR>Paul
that's what we actually needed it to do... upload a file and in the back end ftp it to another site. I wanted to write it so i used the RFC and my .net sockets handbook :-) i didn't bother looking for ftp code, in other words.<BR><BR>but yeah the file would be in memory when it got from the client to the server (not written to a file just yet) then the bytes would be shot along in ftp to another server. it was a neat little too that worked 99% of the time :-)
