For additional information about FTP server status codes, see RFC 959, "File Transfer Protocol," Section 4.2, "FTP Replies," available at http://www.rfc-editor.org.

The following code example sends an FTP request to make a new directory on an FTP server and checks the status code returned in the response.

public static bool MakeDirectoryOnServer (Uri serverUri)
    // The serverUri should start with the ftp:// scheme.
    if (serverUri.Scheme != Uri.UriSchemeFtp)
        return false;

    // Get the object used to communicate with the server.
    FtpWebRequest request = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create (serverUri);
    request.KeepAlive = true;
    request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.MakeDirectory;
    FtpWebResponse response = (FtpWebResponse)request.GetResponse ();
    Console.WriteLine ("Status: {0}", response.StatusDescription);
    return true;
