Ftp Upload -

Md Sadham asked:

Open original thread
After browse the file using fileUpload, there is one button onClick event followed. In that event, am upload the file which is in fileUpload to the ftp server.

* Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Why its happening?

* User credentials are checked clearly
* Also checked, am still free member for this account and having free space for storing data.


                FileUpload1.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~/Upload/") + FileUpload1.FileName);

                FtpWebRequest myFtpWebRequest;
                FtpWebResponse myFtpWebResponse;
                StreamWriter myStreamWriter;
                NetworkCredential myNetworkCredential;
                StreamWriter myStream;
                StreamReader myReadStream;                        
                myFtpWebRequest = (FtpWebRequest)FtpWebRequest.Create(new Uri("" + FileUpload1.FileName));
                myNetworkCredential = new NetworkCredential();
                myNetworkCredential.UserName = txtfldUsername.Text;
                myNetworkCredential.Password = txtfldPassword.Text;
                myFtpWebRequest.Credentials = myNetworkCredential;
                myFtpWebRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile;
                myFtpWebRequest.UseBinary = true;

                myStream = new StreamWriter(myFtpWebRequest.GetRequestStream());// This line causes problem
                myStreamWriter = myStream;
                myReadStream = new StreamReader(Server.MapPath("~/Upload/") + FileUpload1.FileName);

                myFtpWebResponse = (FtpWebResponse)myFtpWebRequest.GetResponse();
                //Label6.Text = myFtpWebResponse.StatusDescription;
                LblStatus.Text = "Status : File uploaded successfully";               
            catch (Exception ex)
                LblStatus.Text = "Status : "+ ex.Message;
