When I call File.Exists it always return true, even if the file doesn't exists. The version of Rebex ftp I've purchased is 4.0.5298.0; runtime version is v2.0.50727. Here is the code:

        Rebex.Net.Ftp f = new Rebex.Net.Ftp();
        f.LogWriter = new Rebex.FileLogWriter(@"log.txt", Rebex.LogLevel.Debug);
        f.Login("simotion", "simotion");

        if (f.FileExists("b:\\USER\\SIMOTION\\USER_DIR\\UPP\\UNITDS\\Var_Recipe\\ds000000.dat"))
            Console.WriteLine("Not Exists");



And here is the log:

Sorry for not replying earlier - we were having some issues with the forum (spambot overload) and missed your question. Next time, if we don't reply within a day or two, please let us know at support@rebex.net!

This said, it looks like you discovered a bug. The behavior you describe indeed occurs with FTP servers that behave like yours and it is obviously incorrect. We will fix it and provide a hotfix. Sorry for inconvenience!
