Cancels the current operation.


      public override bool Cancel()


      This method cancels the current operation. When data is being transferred, calling this method causes the object to attempt to abort the data transfer gracefully. If the Config.SendAbortCommand property is enabled, the method will send the ABOR command to the FTP server. If the Config.SendTelnetInterruptSignal property is enabled and the current operation is a file download, the method sends Telnet interrupt signal to an FTP server.

      The Cancel method can also be used to abort other processes. For example, this method can be used to abort a lengthy multi-file operation (e.g. transferring files or deleting files).

      If the State property is not Ready state, you might need to call the Flush to set it back to the Ready state.
