Safari and FTP site
Authored by: glennmurtagh on Apr 19, '04 06:27:23PM

Does anyone know why i get permissions error when trying to upload to a ftp site using Safari? I can use Transmit and it works fine, and also on a dreaded PC it works with IE (drag and drop) with the same account and password. Thanks.

Because, as the parent post says, OSX mounts it as a read-only volume.

Why the hell does it do that?

KDE, and even Windows, mount FTP servers read-write, so why not OS X? I upload to FTP servers more often than I download. It seems nonsensical for native FTP to be read-only.
