    Hello,

    Our ASP.NET application needs to be able to access remote
    ftp site and bring files to the local server. I have ftp
    component developed by another company. Basically they're
    using Win32 APIs to achieve ftp related tasks. Is this a
    good idea to use Win APIs in .NET application? Are there
    any issues with that?
    Ideally I would like to use 100% managed code, if
    possible of course. Does System.Net namespace have any
    ftp functionality?

    Thanks
