Post anonymous folder writing with vsftpd

Hey there,

I'm trying to set up vsftpd to serve out to windows boxed from an FC4 install. I have a scratch directory (permissions 777) inside /var/ftp/pub called scratch, and from within windows I can make a new folder inside it. However, I cannot change the folders name or delete it. when I do I get the 550: access denied error. I am wondering how to make it so that annoymous users can change files once they are ON the ftp server - not just upload them.

Any help hugely appreciated.

check what the access of these newly created folders are. they may not be taking the 777 ownership.

The folders are being created with 777 permisions - I've set the anon_umask setting to that in desperation to see if it helps.

What use should the folders made by anonymous be owned by? Atm they are owned by ftp when created.
