C# command line FTP server

I've been working on a command line driven managed FTP server for the past few weekends. Something fun I've been doing on my off-time. Feel free to check it out: http://www.gotdotnet.com/Community/UserSamples/Details.aspx?SampleGuid=0a7606f3-f8ec-4e39-8d0e-517248b7164c. It only supports a subset of the FTP RFC, but hey, one could extend it and post the result here right? =)

    What do you find pedagogical about this for your self? Why isn’t the FTP Service build into Win2kx enough? Are trying to instrument it for logging and other analysis?

    It’s something I had fun with. Ever coded just for fun? All you need is a specification, and what better than a well defined RFC? 😉

    For my scenario, I wanted something I could bring up and tear down from the command line, to transfer files quickly and easily. Just so happened I added a bunch of other cruft (logging, binding etc) just for the hell of it.

    Fun fun fun.
