[ubuntu-uk] uploading files ftp

Dear all

At present I am not able to upload files to an ftp daemon/server.

The set up is an ubuntu machine [which is the ftp daemon/server] connected 
to a windows xp mahcine [which is the ftp client] over LAN.

I have changed/uncommented the necessary directives in /etc/vsftpd.conf:

write enable


the one for enabling new directory entries [forgotten name]

I am connecting to ftp using an anonymous account with generic passwd "ftp"


At present I can download files from the ubuntu ftp daemon/server but I can 
not "upload"
to it or make a new directory within it.

Any ideas

Thanks in advance
