This question already has an answer here:

I'm just trying to connect to the server hosting my website through Finder, but it's always read only, even though I'm logging in with my username and password.

Obviously, I can connect with an FTP client (Fetch), and through the terminal, etc. – but what's the trick to FTP-uploading with Finder?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


From Apple Support:

You can use the Connect To Server command to connect to an FTP server in the Finder, but you will have read-only access. You cannot copy, or upload, to an FTP volume in the Finder.
