Put fails during FTP

Hi All,

I am facing a while i use mput to the server.
Actually i have data on client machine which is windows XP. The data is near to 1GB. I have zipped the data.

I can ftp and connect to Server(Which has Fedora 4 running).
but when i do mput *.zip it gives an error.
I tried to put in a root directory,usr directory. But got the same error.

The error string is like this

ftp> 200 PORT command successful.
Consider using PASV .
553 could not create file

Please help me. Let me know if i am missing anything or any extra permissions is needed for the same???

I'm not surprised, those are not the sort of directories to willy nilly put zip files in.

Try using /tmp or your home directory.

Thanks dude.
It worked for me. Actually i had tried in the tmp/ directory too.
But since tmp directory was full i was getting the error.
