C# version of clsftp?

Is there a c# version of Microsoft's vb.net clsftp code?

David,
"clsFtp" appears to be simply a sample in VB.NET illustrating some FTP
techniques.
You have a Framwork class, FTPWebRequest
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...ebrequest.aspx
that is available from any language.

thanks for the reply.
In the past, I've incorporated ftp requests into applications where I've had
to call ftp servers, downloading and uploading files. No problem with the
classes available.
I've now been asked to make an ftp request of a Unisys mainframe. There is
currently a method in place, using an old DOS application that is calling up
the ftp.exe app.
How can I replace this with a C# Windows client application? ftp classes I
can find all expect to be calling ftp servers. I don't want to just replace
the DOS app with a .NET app that makes a third party call to an ftp app.

David,
There should be no reason why you cannot continue to use the old DOS app by
executing it using the System.Diagnostics.Process class.
If you want a more full-featured ftp .NET Library, I've had good results
with EnterpriseDT ftp. It's open source, the source is in C# but it can be
used from any .NET language.

I appreciate your reply.
Yes, I did that at another shop with apps in vb6. But when I rewrote them in
..net, I pulled in the ftpclass in order to remove dependence on external
applications. I suppose I could go ahead and use external app calls here. I
will have a look at the EnterpriseDT you spoke of.

thanks again,
David
