Where are you stuck? If you are in a hurry please search google for examples and you'll find what you need.

How can we help?

For what? Downloading a file from ftp? There are plenty of examples online. You could have been done by now.

I doubt anyone would copy the content. I think you may be looking at the samples wrong. Either way, Solution 2 has some examples.

You question sounds as if you knew how to download one file. So, the answer is: download many one by one.

Above is the code. Reading the file name and giving the same name to the downloaded file in c:\ folder. While reading the second file ... Throws an error Cannot access a disposed object.object name: at the line dim output as string = reader. Readtoend
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 5-May-15 15:59pm    
Well, don't use a disposed object, of course, create a new one. :-)
Kitty pandu 5-May-15 16:04pm    
Don't know where I'm going wrong. Can u look at the code and let me know
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 5-May-15 17:06pm    
All right; in what line the exception is thrown?
And please move the code sample to the question using "Improve question".
For downloading one file you can use the below link and for multiple file just do it in loop one-by-one ;-)
But don`t forget probably you will need sleep time approximately around 1 second or you can find the best min sleep time by test.[^][^]

Question is not stupid, the answer is stupid.

The link above shows copying the content of file to the local folder. My requirement is I have folder 'A' on ftp ,which has files a and b. I want to download them to my local folder c:\.. .the downloaded file names should be same as the ones in ftp
