cannot create a file in my local ftp server


hi everybody,
i cannot create a folder, file and even cannot rename on my local ftp server.

anonymous_enable=NO ( i changed it to NO )
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_umask=022
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
xferlog_std_format=YES
listen=YES
pam_service_name=vsftpd
userlist_enable=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES


# getenforce
Enforcing

#setsebool - P ftp_home_dir=1

# getsebool -a | grep ftp_home_dir
ftp_home_dir --> on

# service vsftpd status
vsftpd (pid 1262) is running...

# groupadd ftpusers

# useradd ashim

# passwd ashim

# pwd
/var/ftp/pub/files

# usermod -aG ftpusers -d /var/ftp/pub/files ashim

# chown root:ftpusers /var/ftp/pub/files

# chmod g+w /var/ftp/pub/files

# service vsftpd restart

i have checked after giving this command
# chown root:ftpusers /var/ftp/pub/files and
# chmod g+w /var/ftp/pub/files

# pwd
/
# ll
drwxr-xr-x. 23 root root 4096 May 11 01:41 var

pwd
/var
# ll
drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 4096 May 11 01:41 ftp

# pwd
/var/ftp
# ll

# pwd
/var/ftp/pub
# ll

i have install centos in my desktop and windows 7 on my laptop.

550 create directory operation failed

I recently tried doing this but after much reading and editing i found it extremely tedious.

One thing i found you need to do however is once you FTP into your server "ftp:10.10.10.161port number)" you need to authenticate by right clicking in the FTP folder window and clicking login. You will then use your system credentials to log in. Unless you have it set up correctly, the user you authenticate with must be a real user on the server.

So if on your server, you have a user called, "Server", and that user has a valid password, you will need to enter that information in in order to have full read/write/execute access.

Some good SELinux explanations/howtos in this doc http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html.
Mostly you'll want Chap 44; see Chap 43 for background theory.
