File Upload – FTP


Hey Friends,

This post I dedicated in how to upload a file on FTP from NAV. This normally happens when we are doing some sort of processing from a file which has to be processed needs to be downloaded from a FTP and then eventually needs to be processed.

Below is the screenshot of the code that needs to be written.

This one is a very simple example, you can manipulate this as per your need. In the very next post I will come up on dealing with SFTP. This one will work only for FTP.

ConnectionString := ‘ftp://your.ftp.address’;

SourceText := ‘Something that you want to write in the file’;

FTPRequest := FTPRequest.Create(ConnectionString);

FTPRequest.KeepAlive := TRUE;
FTPRequest.UseBinary := TRUE;
FTPRequest.Method := ‘STOR’;

FTPRequest.Credentials := NetworkCredential.NetworkCredential(‘UserID’,’Password’);

UTF8Encoding := UTF8Encoding.UTF8Encoding;

FTPRequest.ContentLength := UTF8Encoding.GetBytes(SourceText).Length;
RequestStream := FTPRequest.GetRequestStream;

FTPResponse := FTPRequest.GetResponse;


FTPRequest  DotNet System.Net.FtpWebRequest.’System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′ FTPRequest DotNet System.Net.FtpWebRequest.’System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′

FTPResponse DotNet System.Net.FtpWebResponse.’System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′

NetworkCredential DotNet System.Net.NetworkCredential.’System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′ WebRequestMethods DotNet System.Net.WebRequestMethods.’System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′

UTF8Encoding DotNet System.Text.UTF8Encoding.’mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′

RequestStream DotNet System.IO.Stream.’mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′
