"Simple" FTP transfer

Does anyone have an example of a simple FTP trasfer app?
All I need to do is transfer one file up to a web site and then
retrieve it again.
Every example I run into is loaded with code that, to some extent, is
unnecessary
Just the basics, set the host name, port number, userID and password,
path to upload to and path to download to and file name.

Hi,

Why do you care about the completeness of the component being used?

Just download one of the several clients, use it as it is and move forward.

Ignacio,
Do you have one in mind that isn't cluttered with unnecessary
properties and methods?

JP,
I have found EnterpriseDT FTP.Net easy to use and efficient. If you believe
in "not reinventing the wheel" (as I do).

Best of all, for purists like you, all the source code is there so you can
rip out code to your heart's content!

The ftp client in .Net 2.0 not working for you?

You may wish to try Secure FTP Factory for .NET. It includes
components for both FTP and FTPS (FTP over SSL)
