I can mount my windows machines using ftp://ip address and see the folders on the remote machine from my Mac (using OS X), but I can't write to those folders, only read. How do I get write access?

This is my first question and my first subscription to this service - let's see if I get my 10 bucks worth! ;-)

Ok, so you are connecting via FTP.

I would say check the permissions on the server/machine you are connecting to. Sounds like you only have been granted read permissions to your account. Or if connecting anonymously then the anoynmous account only has read permissions.

indeed.. you're not connecting to a share folder but to an ftp server,
so probibly you would need to add a user name and password in the url. and give the account read / write etc. permission
check the apple help for sharing files with windows machines

a link would look like this:
ftp://user:pass@domein.com
ftp://user:pass@ip
ftp://admin:god@expert-excange.com ;)
