FtpWebRequest.KeepAlive Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets a Boolean value that specifies whether the control connection to the FTP server is closed after the request completes.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

'Declaration
Public Property KeepAlive As Boolean
'Usage
Dim instance As FtpWebRequest
Dim value As Boolean

value = instance.KeepAlive

instance.KeepAlive = value
/** @property */
public boolean get_KeepAlive ()

/** @property */
public void set_KeepAlive (boolean value)

public function get KeepAlive () : boolean

public function set KeepAlive (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the connection to the server should not be destroyed; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

A new value was specified for this property for a request that is already in progress.

When the KeepAlive property is set to false, the control connection is closed when you call the Close method.

Changing KeepAlive after calling the GetRequestStream, BeginGetRequestStream, GetResponse, or BeginGetResponse method causes an InvalidOperationException exception.

The following code example retrieves and displays property values for a specified FtpWebRequest object.

Console.WriteLine("Passive: {0}  Keep alive: {1}  Binary: {2} Timeout: {3}.", 
    request.UsePassive, 
    request.KeepAlive, 
    request.UseBinary,
    request.Timeout == -1 ? "none" : request.Timeout.ToString()
);
