Description Anubhav Ranjan 2014-11-27 15:01:00 UTC
One of the client is trying to make use of 
System.Net.FtpWebRequest.ClientCertificates but gets this error 
"The requested feature is not implemented"

##Although, looking at the code seems like it's not implemented in Mono.

##Code Used: 

private void Connection_FTP(string sfile_certificate)
        = new RemoteCertificateValidationCallback(myCertificateValidation);
    FtpWebRequest request =

    request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.ListDirectory;
    request.EnableSsl = true;
    request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("xxxxxx", "xxxxxx");
    char[] cPw = new char[]{'s','i','a','C','l','i','e','n','t','C','e','r','t'};
    SecureString pwCert = new SecureString();

    int j = 0;
    while(j < cPw.Length)

    request.ClientCertificates.Add(new X509Certificate(sfile_certificate pwCert));

    WebResponse response = null;

        response = request.GetResponse();
    catch(Exception respEx)


public bool myCertificateValidation(Object sender,
    X509Certificate cert, X509Chain chain, SslPolicyErrors Errors)
    return (true);
