Hi frds,

I m getting the "The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required." Exception while running the below code to access a remote file from FTP system.

FtpWebRequest request = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("ftp://"+FtpServerName+FtpFilePath);
request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.DownloadFile;
// This example assumes the FTP site uses anonymous logon.
request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(FtpUserId, FtpPassword);
FtpWebResponse response = (FtpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
Stream responseStream = response.GetResponseStream();
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(responseStream);
Console.WriteLine("Download Complete, status {0}", response.StatusDescription);

That means that your communication goes through a proxy server, and taht proxy server requires authentication. Before calling request.GetResponse(), do:
request.Proxy = new WebProxy("Address-of-my-proxy");
request.Proxy.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("proxy-username", "proxy-password");
