Ftp - can upload, can't download

Hi there, I just recently got a new account. I am able to connect with FTP and upload to any folder but when I try to download a file back down to my computer, receiving the error:
failed to open file xx.txt
fail error on WRITE

Permissions are set to 744

Also just noticed that my under construction page is not working either.


directory permissions on the back end?

I can delete any file

Thanks for any suggestion

Ok, set the permissions to 755 and the website works now.

I still cannot download any files via ws_ftp LE
