Subject RE: FTP put problems
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2001 19:31:27 GMT
ftp client to Solaris (and most other operating systems)
always puts you into your home directory. 

I did try and do Jim's suggestion, to put a file into 
the root directory, but the system is tied down security
wise (quite sensibly) and it's not possible to ftp as
root or change the permissions on the root directory. 

Either way, my earlier snooping suggests that the ftp 
task didn't even attempt to put the file in the directory.
