FTP Upload with FTP Account
Currently have a code that uploads an .xml file to my server. However, this code only works if I use my cPanel credentials. I think it would be easier, and much safer, if possible, to be able to connect via an ftp account. Any suggestions?
Dim request As System.Net.FtpWebRequest = DirectCast(System.Net.WebRequest.Create("ftp://ftp.myserver.com), System.Net.FtpWebRequest) request.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("cpaneluser", "cpanelpass") request.Method = System.Net.WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile Dim file() As Byte = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes(path) Dim strr As System.IO.Stream = request.GetRequestStream() strr.Write(file, 0, file.Length) strr.Close() strr.Dispose()

Back in the VB6 days there was an Inet control that gave you ftp support from your code. There must be something similar in NET, try searching for ftp vb controls
The command-line ftp program can be called from code. For security though, I'd want to use ftps or some other secure transfer, basic ftp is not secure.
