Get the File Last Modified datetime from FTP Server – SSIS

There are many ways to get the file modified date from the FTP server. But, I like to write a VB.net code to do that task simpler. Script Task is used in SSIS.

Code: To fetch the file last modified datetime

Imports System.Net

Dim reqFTP As FtpWebRequest = DirectCast(FtpWebRequest.Create(New Uri(“ftp://SERVERName/FileName”)),  FtpWebRequest)

reqFTP.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.GetDateTimestamp

reqFTP.Credentials = New NetworkCredential(“USER NAME”, “PASSWORD”)

response = DirectCast(reqFTP.GetResponse(), FtpWebResponse)



Using Credentials is based on the server requirement. In this script, file date time is just displayed using Message box. We can use package variable to store the value.

    Even if free FTP software the cost to set it up and manage is too much. On the other hand, Binfer can be run on any computer without separate server or client components. See Binfer as FTP alternative
