Default Problems with FTP

Hello Everyone and thanks for your help in advance. I am working on an FTP client program to download some fairly large images files from an FTP site. The download begins correctly but nearly always, I receive the following exception:

System.IO.IOException: Unable to read data from the transport connection: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

On a few rare occasions, the download will complete successfully. The code I am using is the following:

        Dim objFTPRequest As FtpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(URL), FtpWebRequest)
        objFTPRequest.Credentials = New NetworkCredential(UserName, Password)

        objFTPRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.DownloadFile

        Dim objFTPResponse As FtpWebResponse = CType(objFTPRequest.GetResponse, FtpWebResponse)

        Dim objStream As Stream = objFTPResponse.GetResponseStream

        'loop to read & write to file
        Dim fs As New IO.FileStream(LocalFile, IO.FileMode.Create)

        Dim buffer(2047) As Byte
        Dim read As Integer = 0
            read = objStream.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)
            fs.Write(buffer, 0, read)
        Loop Until read = 0 'see Note(1)



I am not sure what I need to do to get this working. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
