I have to create an application to upload and download files using FTP.Are there any classes, methods in VB.Net 2005(Windows Application) to do this?
I have created a small GUI for this.
It contains 4 text boxes - Path of Local file to be uploaded, IP address of remote machine, User name and password of remote machineÃÂ At last there is one Transfer button when I click on this transfer button that file should get copied to the remote machine.
I tried this using FTPWebRequest class by reading example in msdn.
But to connect to remote machine it requires URI format of FTP and I only have IP address of that remote machine. I think there is no web server on that remote machine.
Should I need to install web server on that remote machine.
Or is there any other method to do upload files to remote machine ?
I hope i'm on the right forum. If not my appologies.
I want to have the posibility to upload & download files to a Https server.
I have found a way to do this with http but what is the difference between http & https.
IÃÂ know https is secured thats why I want to use it but what way do I make a connection to it?
for http I found this article: http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/mahesh/WebRequestNResponseMDB12012005232323PM/WebRequestNResponseMDB.aspx
I don't want to use third party software.
Also a side question:
Is it possible to send data using FTPS. I've managed to upload and download data from a FTPserver using the WinInet.dll but this isn't possible to do it on a FTPS server (i think)
Is there a way to connect to a FTPS server and upload and download data to and from the server?
We need to download multiple files from remote servers. It is a process that would take few hours to complete, since we are talking about images ~50kb each and more than 250.000 in total. Each images will downloaded, resized and then imported to SQL.DB, so we do not need to write files to the disk. Also the applications need to use network credentials, since it is behind ISA.
From your experience, what is the best method to implement this? Should we use WebClient or HttpSockets? Should we use Async methods or Threads ? How can we implement for example 5 simultaneously download to achieve better speed, since we may getting files from many different servers at once?
