    see the code :


    //FTP Server URL.
    string ftpFolder = @"Views/";
    String ftp = "ftp://myftp/"; // e.g. fake IDs
    String ftpusername = "usr"; // e.g. fake username
    String ftppassword = "pass"; // e.g. fake password
    // string serverpath = Server.MapPath(FileUpload1.FileName);
    byte[] fileBytes = new byte [1024];

    foreach (HttpPostedFile fileupload in FileUpload1.PostedFiles)
    string serverpath = Server.MapPath(fileupload.FileName);
    string fileName = Path.GetFileName(fileupload.FileName);

    using (StreamReader fileStream = new StreamReader(fileupload.InputStream))
    fileBytes = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(fileStream.ReadToEnd());

    FtpWebRequest request = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(ftp + ftpFolder + fileName);
    request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile;
    // request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.ListDirectory;
    request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(ftpusername, ftppassword);
    request.ContentLength = fileBytes.Length;
    request.UsePassive = true;
    request.UseBinary = true;
    request.ServicePoint.ConnectionLimit = fileBytes.Length;
    request.EnableSsl = false;
    request.Timeout = -1;

    // FileStream fs = File.OpenRead(@"\\Mac\Home\Desktop\"+fileName);

    // this is true path \\Mac\Home\Desktop\.........png
    // check if i put tru pthe here is work file
    FileInfo fInfo = new FileInfo(serverpath);
    FileStream fs = File.OpenRead(fileName); // here we must put path of the exist file or don't work
    fileBytes = new byte[1024];
    double total = (double)fileBytes.Length;
    int byteRead = 0;
    double read = 0;
    using (Stream ftpstream = request.GetRequestStream())

    byteRead = fs.Read(fileBytes, 0, 1024);
    ftpstream.Write(fileBytes, 0, byteRead);
    read += byteRead;

    while (byteRead != 0);




    FtpWebResponse response = (FtpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();

    lblMessage.Text += fileName + "Uploaded.<br />";
    catch (WebException ex)
    throw new Exception((ex.Response as FtpWebResponse).StatusDescription);


    ftpusername = string.Empty;
    ftppassword = string.Empty;

    Keep in mind that when working on a dev machine you are in the very special case where the same machine is both the web server and the browsser side machine.

    You are using the file upload input tag and usually the actual client side location is not posted to the server for safety reason.  Anyway if running on a real server you would not have access anyway to the client side drive.

    As for a usual download upload you'll lhave to use the FileContent stream to read the uploaded file on your web server and then write this content to the final FTP server.

    Don't think about client path. Maybe security reason not allow you to see their resources or some information.

    You only need to save file upload to your resources.
