No idea. I tested this out on a couple of servers and all was well. Take a look at a netmon trace of the conversation - I suspect the issue is with the FTP server in Windows and its setup, vs an error in .NET or my script. If you provide me with a few more details I can take a deeper look.

Thanks for the post!
