I’m attempting to upload a file to AS400 using C#. The structure is: ftp server ip address/library/table. E.g. 10.123.1.23/ABCD/XYZ. FileName : sample.txt
The AS400 table has same fields as my file layout. I am able to successfully upload file using ftp commands using PUT command as below.
ftp> open 10.123.1.23
ftp> cd ABCD
ftp> put sample.txt ABCD/XYZ. I get a success message.
But when I try using FtpWebRequest, i get a 550 :” File unavailable or no access” error message.’
I’m not sure how to construct the URI. Currently, my code looks like
FtpWebRequest ftpRequest = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(@"ftp://184.108.40.206/ABCD/” + file.Name);
Also, i’m unable to browse to the ftp folder using internet explorer or windows explorer. I get the same 550 error.
i'm using .Net 4.0, VS 2010
Any help is much appreciated.

@Mike Thanks a ton. That worked. Modified URL looks like this
FtpWebRequest ftpRequest = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(@"ftp://220.127.116.11/ABCD/XYZ”);
