    FTP site is on a Windows 2000 workstation. Trying to do an FTP put from a Windows 98SE workstation, from the command line, to the FTP site. Getting an "access is denied" error. A get from the W2K machine to the W98SE machine works fine.

    Check folder permissions on the W2K machine, Everyone has full permission and they are inherited down the tree. c:\InetPub\ftproot has full permissions for everyone.

    At a lost as to what to do next.

    Thanks

    Hi usmyrmss,

    Welcome to TSG ! :)

    I would like to know if you are able to ping from your W98 computer and also, if you have a firewall installed on the W2K computer.

    Edit : I did not see your second post while I was writing mine.

    Ping is fine. No FW between.

    I can GET files from the W2K box to the W98SE box, but can't PUT files from the W98SE box to the W2K box.

    I found the solution . . .
    Reference: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q201779

    Start>Settings>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Internet Services Manager
    Expand the home site
    Right click the "Default FTP Site"
    Properties
    Left click the "Home Directory" tab
    Check the "Write" box in the "FTP Site Directory" section
    Left click Apply
    Left click OK
    Close Internet Services Manager
