As i said this code works like a charm changing permission of index.html
Are you sure you're dealing with a unix machine? chmod in UPPER case should not work on unix.

what would be the difference if it's a Linux (some of the distro's) ???
Anyway it remains that UPPER case command works flawless for a single file/dir.
Thanks for any further help Smilie

Unix/Linux is case sensitive, Windows is not. The fact that you can execute CHMOD would mean that either there is a non standard upper case chmod command or that you may not be executing on unix. You may be executing on Windows with some unix like commands.

I suppose another explanation maybe that your code is some how translating to lower case. Or maybe there's some variant of unix that I am unaware of that is not case sensitive.

You start by asking one question then later explain that the scenario is then totally different. Commands executed in an ftp session have nothing to do with commands executed within a shell.

If these are commands executed within an ftp session you are restricted to those.

If you want to run commands under a shell then use ssh or equivalent.

Well from the beginning i thought that it's just a command that should behave same if you type in command .. and if you send through TCP connection.
Anyway please notice that it is a direct TCP connection with the server. FTP has nothing to do with that. I've just mentioned the FTP in order to inform you about the idea otherwise i open new TCP connection and send those commands:
TcpClient tcpClient = new TcpClient();
tcpClient.Connect(this.txtServerAddress.Text, Convert.ToInt32(this.txtPortNumber.Text));

So if there is one who knows what the problem is please let me know.

Thanks for any further help.

What port are you connecting to? SSH? Telnet? FTP? rsh? rexec? HTTP?

Old 09-18-2007
Ok i got your point i do connecting to the port #21 (FTP) instead 22 which is default port for SSH but how do you explain the fact that it works fine when i target a single file/directory?
Thanks for the patient Smilie
