Having trouble getting FTP working, It will now allow me to connect using Basic Authentication and I can "download" files, but cannot "Upload" files. Gives a "550 Access Denied" message in my FTP client.  As far as I can tell my site has the corrct ntfs permissions.

In the "IIS Manager", for your FTP site, what do you see when you see in the "Permissions Column" on selecting the "FTP Authorization Rules" option?

Seems we have fixed it.  It was in the FTP Authorization rules.  Thanks

Found a setting that was on Read only.  Changed it to read/write and it fixed it.
