ok, can we all see the problem here?   ;-)

richard, seriously, you need to write your emails better.  you led mark
and david on a wild goose chase.  this could have been potentially a
very long and difficult thread if nobody thought to ask you exactly what

ok, so you're trying to put files to the server.

can you guess what the most likely cause for the error is?   ;-)
