    I've go AOL 10.3 and Mac OS 10.2.6 and have similiar problem as Dougster described.
    When I attempt connect to FTP while logged on to my AOL account, I get indication that I'm connected, but when I try to Put files I get error message: Server response: Only "incoming" directories are guest writable.

    Suggestions please
    Jim

    AOL's server is not recognizing you as being logged into AOL, so it's treating you like a guest.

    Are you dialed in using your AOL software? If you open the Network panel in System Preferences and choose "Network Port Configurations" from the Show pop-up menu, what is listed? If you choose each of those, what IP address is shown?

    Thanks,

    I've been working over Airport and Wireless Router.
    I never looked at the Network System Preferences before.
    I found there under the "Show" pulldown...
    - Internal Modem
    - Built-in Ethernet
    - Airport
    ...in that order. Switched order to prefer Airport first. Don't know if that makes a difference.

    Airport: IP = 192.168.0.2
    Router 192.168.0.1
    Do you think Airport and Wireless Router are presenting a problem?

    PS on 9/13... I've discovered if I access AOL via my slug dialup I am able to upload the files. If you have any ideas on how I can make this work on the DSL and Airport Wireless I'd appreciate it.

    I think that if you are connected by DSL the AOL FTP server can't tell that you're logged into AOL, and so it treats you as a guest. I would recommend contacting AOL support to see if there's a way around this.

    Thanks,
