Problem with URI type

P: n/a
Hello,

I've been trying out the ftp upload functionnalities of the
WebRequestMethods.Ftp class.

Using the examples at this site:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...ebrequest.aspx

I've been able to upload a file to my destination server but I've been
unable to send a file in a directory that is higher up than the home
directory of the ftp user that I have been using.

For example if my ftp user when logged in starts at:

/home/ftpUser

And I want to upload the file to: /tmp on the destination machine I
tried to specify the destination path as:

ftp://myserver/../../tmp/myfile.txt

The Uri class seems to ignore the '..' telling it to go up a directory.
When it uploads the file it sends it to /home/ftpUser.

How do I specify a ftp path so that it knows to start its directory
structure from the / ?
