chimcham asked:

Open original thread
So I have this ftp upload, upload file from my local to ftp folder, but my problem is, I need to refresh the FTP Folder to view my uploaded file.

Pls help.

What I have tried:

using System.Net;
using System.IO;

//Create FTP request
FtpWebRequest request = (FtpWebRequest)FtpWebRequest.Create(ftpAdd + "/" + Path.GetFileName(filePath));

request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile;
request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(username, password);
request.UsePassive = true;
request.UseBinary = true;
request.KeepAlive = true;

//Load the file
FileStream stream = File.OpenRead(filePath);
byte[] buffer = new byte[stream.Length];

stream.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);

//Upload file
Stream reqStream = request.GetRequestStream();
reqStream.Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);
request = null;
MessageBox.Show("Uploaded Successfully");
