Fair enough, but do bear in mind that the OpenSSH server is trivial  
to configure on Ubuntu :-)

This isn't quite what I was getting at. You should be able to upload  
files simply using "put" all being well.

What I meant is that you should chmod the directory you'll be  
uploading to beforehand. This needs to be done on the Ubuntu machine,  
not via anonymous FTP. You can either use chmod from the terminal or  
change the permissions for the directory from the file manager.
