apache ftp - .net equivalent?

Not sure if this is the write forum for this question. Hopefully I'm close.

I've written a nice custom ftp server in Java using Apache that works marvelously. Unfortunately, I've been told that it needs to be re-written in VB or C# (aka .net) for windows and NOT use IIS for the FTP api. So.... Is there a suitable .net equivalent to Apache?

Thanks

You could have a look at IKVM which allows you to run Java code in a .Net environment.

Thanks. This looks like it could be quite useful, especially if the Apache FTP jars, etc can be converted to DLLs for use in .NET. Would that be possible?

I dunno. Click on the "Using Java Libraries" link and see what it has to say.
