curlftpfs Permission denied

curlftpfs -o allow_other -o uid=1030 -o gid=100 -v ftp://$userid:$password@$ftpserver /mnt/ftp/

-rwxrwxrwx 1 $userid users 295426 Mar 30 11:41 $filename.pdf

on the FTP SERVER I have the files currently all 777 permissions as you can see from the file listed above.

when I try and cp a file from the mounted directory to another location on the file system I get the following error:

$server:/mnt/ftp # cp $filename.pdf /home/wademac/
cp: cannot open `$filename.pdf' for reading: Permission denied


server is: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP1
curl | 7.15.1-19.7 | i586
curlftpfs | 0.9-2.2 | i586
libcurl4 | 7.19.6-21.1 | i586
fuse | 2.8.3-3.1 | i586
libfuse2 | 2.8.3-3.1 | i586

the verbose data

$server:/mnt # curlftpfs -o allow_other -o uid=1030 -o gid=100 -v ftp://$userid:$password@$ftpserver /mnt/ftp/

I am assuming this is the FTP server which is giving me this issues as I have setup a test server with no permission issues any takers on why I see 103 views but no comments
