I don't know if you require a login or you have anonymous logins in place.  But, generally, when you can't upload a file, it just means you have not allowed the user who is logged in, whether anonymous or not, write permission to actually put a file into the default directory/folder.

open the Internet Information Services Manager
Right click your ftp site -> Properties -> Home Directory -> Check "Write"
per default it's unchecked.

Also check the folder where the files would be dumped if it has the appropriate permissions that will allow a user to write on it...

sorry :( I left out the most important part! I can't figure out the user part for permissions... I can't upload to assigned directories for users or actually assign them so the other users can't see the folders they are not supposed to see.  do I just make a folder, set the user permision for eachindividual user? So, that when they login they can only upload to there own folder?  Thanks a bunch and I'm increasing the available points I have (5) for the help.

how did you create the ftp site?
did you choose Isolated Users?

CarlWarner: This article is for IIS 4 + 5.
W2K3 comes with IIS 6.
IIS6 is totally different to IIS5.
Don't use KB Articles written for IIS5 on IIS6. It will screw your IIS.

It works fine.  The differences in IIS versions is not in this area.

btw, isolated users mode does not exist in IIS5.
you have to trick IIS5 to do, what IIS6 can as it is.
