FTP - OSX Connect to Server Privilege Issues

I’m using the built in FTP with OSX - Connect to server - ftp://hostname

I only ever get read privileges and not read/write

How do I get this to work correctly? I’m on Tiger 10.4.10

Thanks to DH Tech support this is a limitation of finder:


However, you can Connect to Server using AFP. But neither FTP nor AFP are that secure. I would set up an SSH tunnel for AFP. I posted the tunnel command yesterday in some other thread and don’t have it handy at the moment.
