Removed pre tags to improve readability.

Have you even bothered searching for this? I very much doubt it.

Because I'm in a good mood, this[^] might help you. It was one of the first hits on a search.

If you have searched, then I apologize, but if, as I suspect, you haven't, don't be so lazy next time.

There are countless C# to VB converters out there. None are perfect but most of them will do most of the work for you. All that is required is a little application.

Today I put a sample program to manage your FTP
Perhaps all of you with many programs to work with FTP or have seen much of you need to have transferred the file to the server or servers to receive and manage the server.
It can create folders, manage and delete files and folders, upload and download files to your will.

Familiar with the concept for "FTP" and the launch method, click here

The software language is written in C # 2008.
I plan to have written part of office automation and felt that's too difficult to copy and upload in a network environment are fully software compatible with Windows Server - XP and 7 are by all FTP Microsoft and all FTP installed on the data center support.

Comment code:
1 - Uploading a file:

 private void Btn_UploadFTP_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
   string _tempServerPath = Txt_ServerPath.Text + <br />           "\\" + Path.GetFileName(Txt_LocalPath_Upload.Text);
   ftPclient1.FTPclient_SetInfo(Txt_Domain.Text, Txt_User.Text, Txt_Pass.Text);
   ftPclient1.Upload(Txt_LocalPath_Upload.Text, _tempServerPath);
public bool Upload(FileInfo fi, [Optional, DefaultParameterValue("")] string targetFilename)
  string str;
  bool _Lvr=true;
  if (targetFilename.Trim() == "")
       str = this.CurrentDirectory + fi.Name;
  else if (targetFilename.Contains("/"))
       str = this.AdjustDir(targetFilename);
        str = this.CurrentDirectory + targetFilename;
   string uRI = this.Hostname + str;
   FtpWebRequest request = this.GetRequest(uRI);
   request.Method = "STOR";
   request.UseBinary = true;
   request.ContentLength = fi.Length;
   byte[] array = new byte[0x800];
   using (FileStream stream = fi.OpenRead())
          using (Stream stream2 = request.GetRequestStream())
             int num;
                  num = stream.Read(array, 0, 0x800);
                  stream2.Write(array, 0, num);
                  Application.DoEvents();<br />                  CountProcesses = <br />                             Convert.ToInt32(<br />                             Math.Round((decimal)(stream.Position * 100) / stream.Length));
                while (num >= 0x800);
           catch (Exception exception1)
             _Lvr = false;
              Exception exception = exception1;
   request = null;
   return _Lvr;

2 - Download the file:

private void button4_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
   string _Source_DownloadPath = Txt_ServerPath.Text + "\\" + Txt_FileNameDownload.Text;
   ftPclient1.FTPclient_SetInfo(Txt_Domain.Text, Txt_User.Text, Txt_Pass.Text);
   ftPclient1.Download(_Source_DownloadPath, Txt_LocalPath_Download.Text, false);

3 - Display files:

private void button5_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    Txt_View_FtpFile.Text = string.Empty; ;
    ftPclient1.FTPclient_SetInfo(Txt_Domain.Text, Txt_User.Text, Txt_Pass.Text);
    List<string> _listFile = ftPclient1.ListDirectory("//"+Txt_ServerPath.Text);
    for (int i = 0; i < _listFile.Count; i++)
       Txt_View_FtpFile.Text += _listFile[i].ToString() + Environment.NewLine;
