ftp - trouble uploading files


I should be able to figure this out, its so simple.
I've had no trouble upload files to this FTP before, but
now nothing is working.

It doesn't seem to be a permission problem.
Here is what i'm seeing.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
user bill logged in.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.


bash-2.05a$ ls -l /home/bill/Desktop/cable

What I'm seeing is that either you don't have /home/bill directory or you are using chroot for users connecting to FTP.

Maybe you deleted the user bill from your accounts, or account has expired

Check that out.

Another thing that might be causing the problem is that you chroot at connecting to FTP

Try to cd to the directory

cd /home
cd bill

if that gets you anywhere

if not, see if you are already in /home/bill (chrooted) and work from there.

marghorp,
Thanks for the help. If I start ftp while i'm in /home/bill/Desktop/cable then ftp
will think the local root is that location. Good suggestion as I can upload then
Just fine but some of the other files are in /home/bill/Desktop/cable/thumbs
and it still gets confused. I copied the output below.
(Also Desktop does have an uppercase on the D)

The user bill is actual me so he exist as its my home dir.
I've just changed my real name out and replaced it with
bill.

I might also mention the ftp i'm connecting to is my ISP.
upload.comcast.net
