Are you sure you are getting

Are you sure you are getting logged in and not just connecting to the server? You can be connected to an FTP server and still not be logged in. You can't do much until you do login. Try typing "user" to get it to re-log-on. Also, are you FTP'ing from a web browser? Some (Safari) mount FTP sessions on the desktop.

firewall

I was connecting to my server, just couldn't put or get.
The remote location was actually right here,
I logged in to a friends server from here to see if I could hit my box, it's likely it was my penguinista friend's firewall that prevented me from downloading the test file to his server.
I think I am fine... someone else was able to get in and grab a file.
Thank you for responding, though; I think I hold the record for the most posts that are ignored.
