unable to upload as anonymous in FTP

I am having problem uploading a file from client localmachine to ftp server.

Here is the configuration I have done.

* Installed vsftpd
* Enabled vsftpd service
* Started vsftpd service
* Set SEBoolean for ftp_home_dir to 1 and allow_ftpd_anon_write to 1

In the /etc/vsftpd/vsftp.conf file

In the server I logged into one user in ftp and I was able to upload and download data.

In the client I logged in as anonymous and I was able to download but not able to upload data.

Error: 553 Could not create file.

Are you sure the directory in which you are uploading data has enough permission?
I think you may not have write permissions on the remote system to upload in the directory.

You can not give write permission as anonymous.
First log in as a owner and give write permission to directory
# chmod -R 777 /path/of/dir
now Try to upload file as anonymous.
