You can Upload with something like this:

public static bool upload(string Filepath, string username, string password)
        {
            
            string ftpHost = @"ftp://ftp.website.com/";
            string ftpUser = username;
            string ftpPass = password;
            string filename = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(Filepath);
            string fullpath = ftpHost + filename;
            Stream RequestStream = null;
            FtpWebRequest request = null;
            try
            {
                request = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(fullpath);
                request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile;
                request.KeepAlive = true;
                request.UseBinary = true;
                request.Proxy = null;
                request.UsePassive = true;
                request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(ftpUser, ftpPass);

                FileStream sourceStream = File.OpenRead(Filepath);
                byte[] buffer = new byte[sourceStream.Length];

                sourceStream.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);
                sourceStream.Close();

                RequestStream = request.GetRequestStream();
                RequestStream.Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);
                RequestStream.Close();
                FtpWebResponse response = (FtpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
                FtpStatusCode code = response.StatusCode;
                string Description = response.StatusDescription;
                response.Close();
                if (code == FtpStatusCode.ClosingData)
                {
                    RequestStream.Close();
                    return true;
                }
                else
                {
                    RequestStream.Close();
                    return false;
                }

            }catch(Exception ex)
            {
                System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Error uploading" + ex.Message);
                return false;
            }
        }

And you can Download something with this:

private static bool Download(string remoteDir, string file, string ftpServerIP, string ftpUserID, string ftpPassword)
        {
    
            try
            {  
                FileStream writeStream;
                string uri = ftpServerIP + remoteDir + file;
                Uri serverUri = new Uri(uri);
                if (serverUri.Scheme != Uri.UriSchemeFtp)
                {
                    return false;
                }       
                FtpWebRequest reqFTP;                
                reqFTP = (FtpWebRequest)FtpWebRequest.Create(uri);                                
                reqFTP.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(ftpUserID, ftpPassword);                
                reqFTP.KeepAlive = false;                
                reqFTP.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.DownloadFile;                                
                reqFTP.UseBinary = true;
                reqFTP.Proxy = null;                 
                reqFTP.UsePassive = true;
                FtpWebResponse response = (FtpWebResponse)reqFTP.GetResponse();
                Stream responseStream = response.GetResponseStream();
                writeStream = new FileStream(@"C:\Temp\" + file, FileMode.Create);
                
                int Length = 2048;
                Byte[] buffer = new Byte[Length];
                int bytesRead = responseStream.Read(buffer, 0, Length);               
                while (bytesRead > 0)
                {
                    writeStream.Write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);
                    bytesRead = responseStream.Read(buffer, 0, Length);
                }                
                writeStream.Close();
                response.Close();
                return true;
            }
            catch (WebException wEx)
            {

                System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show(wEx.message);
                return false;
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
               System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Error while downloading file: " + file + ". Error details: " + ex.Message);
                return false;
            }
        }

You can change these functions to your liking. Parametrize server address, file, etc...

Make sure you read MSDN on FTP upload and Download. There are a couple of libraries that you can use as well... But in the code above, it's all .net 4.0 code.
