C# FTP Client Library

As this is my first blog, I’m going to write an update for a C# library I wrote in early 2001 on csharphelp.com site. Although it was the first open source FTP client library for .Net, there is a lot changed since then. But I still get emails from people asking about bugs, license etc. And I always send the same reply (when I get the time to do that).

From framework version 2.0, Microsoft has added WebClient class and you could do a lot of networking stuff with it. It is much easier to do FTP downloads/uploads with this new class. There are a lot of articles on the net on how to use FTP with WebClient class, so I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here. Some sites I’ve got through Googling is listed here.

So if anybody is still using my old library, please update your code to use WebClient class.
