I need to upload a gui program to my linux box remotely.  I was trying to use dreamweaver to upload, but it's saying I do not have persmissions.  I need to change the permissions - I can log in through putty with root access, so where do I find the user for Dreamweaver to change permissions on this user so that I can upload the files?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks!

Hi foreverdita,
How is dreamweaver uploading? I assume it is via ftp? What username is it using?

Are you using putty to login via ssh?
If you are then as a temporary solution until you get dreamweaver working you could use winscp to copy the file over a ssh session.
