Error uploading e file with FtpWebRequest

P: n/a

I am trying to upload a file to an ftp server using the FtpWebRequest class,
but I get the following error.
The requested URI is invalid for this FTP command.

I do can upload the file from the Internet Explorer so I have rights to do
it. Why is the 2.0 FtpWebRequest class failing? What I am doing wrong?

My Code:
Dim ftpUri As Uri
Dim s As String

Dim oStream As New StreamReader(mstrFileName)
Dim arBytes() As Byte = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(oStream.ReadToEnd())

ftpUri = New Uri(mstrRemoteHost)

If Not (ftpUri.Scheme = Uri.UriSchemeFtp) Then
Throw New ArgumentException("URI is not an FTp site")
End If

Dim ftpRequest As FtpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(ftpUri),

ftpRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile

ftpRequest.ContentLength = arBytes.Length

ftpRequest.Credentials = New NetworkCredential(mstrRemoteUser,

Dim oftpStream As Stream

oftpStream = ftpRequest.GetRequestStream()
Catch ex As Exception
Return ex.Message
End Try

oftpStream.Write(arBytes, 0, arBytes.Length)

Dim ftpResponse As FtpWebResponse
ftpResponse = ftpRequest.GetResponse

s = ftpResponse.StatusDescription

Return s
