Error 40550. Access denied. FTP pluggin
May 13th, 2008 at 2:56pm

I'm using the FTP pluggin to upload some files on a FTP server.
The files that I'm trying to upload are on the local PC, where the watchdir is installed.

Checking the security of the directory, everyone has full access.

Everytime I'm starting the task, I'm getting the following error:

FTPREPLY: cmd: STOR filename; Code 550; Text 550 filename: Access is denied
Pluggin returned errorcode -1. Error message = 40550. Request action not taken. File unavailable (file not found, no access). Watchdirectory will abort.

The file is there and as I mentioned everyone has full access

Thank you

This error-code is actually returned by your FTP server, the most likely reason is that you didn't set a correct "remote directory" for the FTP plugin (maybe you didn't set it at all? Use the button labeled "..." to select the remote dir). The userid you have entered doesn't have write privilege in the upload directory.
