How to upload files to FTP server using .NET Interop

upload-1118929

In my previous posts i have explained how to download the files from the FTP Server or  move the files from one folder to another on the FTP server. Here are the posts if you have missed them

How to download files from FTP server using .NET Interop

How to move files from one folder to another on FTP server.

In this post i will show you the code i have used to upload the files to the FTP server.   The FTPSetup is a Setup table which I have used to store the path, ftp server, user, and password information.

In the first function (UploadFilesToFTP) I have used an Array to store the paths of all the files from the upload directory, then I iterate through the array and execute second function to upload the file. In the second function it uses FTP Web Request method ‘STOR’ to upload the file to the server.


LOCAL PROCEDURE UploadFilesToFTP@1240060030();

       FTPWebRequest@1240060000 : DotNet "'System, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.System.Net.FtpWebRequest";

FTP works great only if there is some expert to support it. On the other hand, Binfer can be run on any computer without separate server or client components. See Binfer as FTP alternative

Hi I read your post and tried to use it, but i'm facing some issues.

The function i'm creating generates a csv-file on the base of an event from another record. The file i'm creation is a tempfile on the server.
I can't seem to find the tempfile when uploading to ftp - I guess that is my problem.

All this should work withot any user involved.

I have determined by test the the function actually creates the file as i'm able to send the appropriate file attached to an email.

How do I make the file available for transferring to remote ftp-server.
Any help will be appriciated.

Regards
Mads Morre

Suresh Kulla said...

Based on how you creating the file please check both on the server and client. What is the issues you are running into ? you are not able to find the file created ? or not able to upload that file to the ftp ?

Thanks
Suresh
