Redhat 9 (Shrike), vsftpd Can authenticate, but no write permissions

I can't figure out what happened to my ftp server

My users can authenticate, but they have no write permississions in there home directories.  They do have write permissions when telneting into the shell.

Any ideas?

Get free NFR key for Veeam Availability Suite 9.5

check

write_enable

option. If you don't have it in your vsftpd config, add it with

write_enable=YES

since the default is NO. If it is there and set to yes, connect to your FTP using a command line client (ftp.exe on windows, for example) and try to PUT a file manually. See what the output is and post it here.

I changed to
local_umask=077

It works now.  Is this an alright setting?

write_enable=YES already, that was my first thought.

My mistake, that didn't solve the problem.

The problems was actually my ISA server.  By default it doesn't allow write access for FTP.
