I use Mac OS X 10.2.

I am trying to connect to an ftp site. On the GO menu I choose SERVER.

Then I type in ftp://myftpdomain.com
Then I am asked for a username and password which I give

I have now gained access to the ftp site. This is fine but....

I cannot put files onto the site. I do not have editing rights.

Even though the login account that I have used has full ftp rights (I know this for sure).

Is there some setting in my Mac that is disallowing me to editing rights to ftp sites. I n my Preferences I have checked "passive transfers" but this did not work.

Also, please dont suggest a 3rd part ftp client. I am trying to do this via the operating system.  Thanks.

OS X's FTP service is for download only. Not for uploading. So, unless you use FTP via the terminal (command line) you can't do it. You're in for a 3rd party utility or command line.

Transmit is an excellent FTP client
