VB 2005b2 FtpWebRequest with method UploadFile returns readonly stream

P: n/a
Hello group,
using the new ftp-methods from dotnet 2.0(using Beta 2), i try to upload a
file to a ftp server. According to the documentation i write the data on the
stream returned from GetResponseStream , but this stream is readonly!
I checked param and configuration of the used ftp-sites.

Hers some code:
Public Shared Function PutFile(ByVal path As String, ByVal host As String,
ByVal ftpPath As String, ByRef overwrite As Overwrite, ByVal dr As
FtpList.FSListRow, ByVal cred As NetworkCredential) As Boolean
Dim ret As Boolean = True
Dim read As Integer = 0
Dim buffer(Blocksize) As Byte
Dim fwr As FtpWebRequest
fwr = FtpWebRequest.Create("ftp://" & host & ftpPath & dr.Name)
fwr.Credentials = cred
fwr.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile
Dim fdr As FtpWebResponse = Nothing
Dim frs As Stream = Nothing
Dim frso As Stream = Nothing
Dim sr As FileStream = Nothing

fdr = fwr.GetResponse()
frs = fdr.GetResponseStream()
sr = New FileStream(path & "\" & dr.Name, FileMode.Open)
Dim r As Integer = 0
r = sr.Read(buffer, 0, Blocksize)
frs.Write(buffer, 0, r)
Loop While r > 0

Anyone a idea, or just wait for the final dotnet 2.0!?
