Using VB.NET to write a simple FTP app.. Is it possible?

P: n/a

I have a program I'm wanting to write that will open an accounting
program, do a back up (This functionality is buiilt into this accounting
program) and then take the backup file that is a result of the back and
FTP it to a web directory.. I'm wondering if all of this is possible in
VB? I know there is a way to open another program, but I'm wondering
after doing so if there's a way to so something like "Send Keys" to do
the backup since it requires about 3 clicks typically when a user does
this or about 2 keyboard shortcuts (Hot keys, etc,) .. Then I'd like to
automatically log into an FTP site and upload the file.. If anyone can
point me to any resources with tutorials about this I'd sure appreciate
it.. I also like to know where to look on MSDN.Microsoft.Com if anyone
knows!

BTW, your list is great. Have you considered adding titles to it though above
each? Else the user is just kind of picking interesting URL's. :)
