  • Hello,


    Did you use .NET Compact Framework? I find the FtpWebRequest Class is not supported by .NET Compact Framework, so that your codes cannot work on Windows CE.


    However, you can use the native FTP API, please follow the native sample codes in the MSDN document.

    Enumerating Directories.


    Meanwhile, you can follow this blog to use C# and p/invoke to call the APIs in WinInet.dll. But you need to change some codes in this, because this project is not based on Windows Mobile.

    C# FTP client, based on the WinInet.dll API


    I hope my suggestions can help you to solve this problem.
