FTP Upload node: overwrite permission denied

Hi there,
i have build a connection with N8N to pick a file from server A, then i change some values, then i upload the File to server B.
The target is the FTP Connection form our email service provider.
For this purpose, i have received the FTP ( not SFTP, this is not supported) credentials and tested them sucessfully via filezilla and cyberduck.
I can view the folder and upload files.
But this does not work with N8N.

This is working with N8N:
Credentials access
View content of folder
Download content of folder

But when i try to use the “upload” function, i receive the followed error message:

n8n ftp error: the service failed to process your request overwrite permission denied

NodeApiError: The service failed to process your request
    at Object.execute (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/n8n/node_modules/n8n-nodes-base/dist/nodes/Ftp/Ftp.node.js:600:43)
    at Workflow.runNode (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/n8n/node_modules/n8n-workflow/dist/Workflow.js:658:28)
    at /usr/local/lib/node_modules/n8n/node_modules/n8n-core/dist/WorkflowExecute.js:590:53


upload function with given credentials are working if i use them with filezilla or cyberduck
upload function does not work with N8N

Can somebody help me out please?
thanks in advance

Hi @elbrucko - sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this!

Can you try out this solution, and see if that works for you?

If not, can you please share the information in the template that was provided when you initially were posting, such as which version of n8n you are using, if you are on n8n cloud or self-hosting, and your workflow? We’d need this information to further help.

wow, that was a great feedback. thank you so much. i suggest you to the nood-hint accordingly
Eg “provide full path including the filename.”
