I have a linux suse 9.2 and I can download from it no problem but uploading it says 550 Access Denied. On the root of the folder where all the FTP content is the permissions are allow can view and modify content and in advanced permissions they have all the options checked (X'd). so I still cant figure out why upload is not allowed but download is?

This is a permissions issue.

The permissions to upload are a combination of the file and directory permissions, and the config file permissions.

Most config files by default (as a security measure) prevent anyone from uploading anything.

The conf file is most likely to be in the /etc directory. Have a looka t the docs, and I'm sure that it'll tell you which setting you need to alter in the file.

I searched the etc directory for the config file and 4 of them showed up...config hardware and config network and 2 other config ones. The exact name of this file is called "config"? When I do find the right config file what permissions do I give it? Thanks, Im very very new to Linux.

sorry for the delay on this question - the hard drive was full, that's what was causing the problem.

In retrospect I shouldn't have placed that last Admin Comment there.  So I'll explain why I did anyway.  Since you solved you're own issue, and the information is valuable for the PAQ db, you should actually post a Q in the Community Support area (link can be found at top right of page).  You then post a free Q and request a PAQ/Refund since you answered your own question and then reference the URL of this Q.

Reason I posted the Admin Comment is that it would result in the same conclusion.  And I just clicked to post that comment before I really thought about it.  Please accept my apologies if you feel I stepped on your toes here.
