    Default How to get Home directory using Common Net ftp api?

    Hi Friends,

    I am using Common Net FTP api to transfer file to my ftp server.
    Firt i login into the ftp server & the default directory is user home directory.
    The problem i am facing is if i do
    ftp.changeWorkingDirectory(str); once , i am there in the new directory but now i again want to some other directory
    sy: i first login into my home directory which is default:


    now i do


    now dir is : aggarwal/V4>

    No i want to go in aggarwal/V5 but i cant do until i go to home directory and then do ftp.changeWorkingDirectory("V5");

    Can any 1 please tell me if there is any way we can get the default home directory when we connect to ftp server.
    I also tried ftp.changeWorkingDirectory(""); but this doesnt take us to home directory though just doing cd takes us to home dir in unix.

    Please help me guys.

    In FTP, the home directory is designated as "/", the root directory. Just cd("/V4") and cd("/V5"), which specifies fully qualified folder names.
