I just tried it again to make sure, and it does indeed work fine for
me on win2k. What are you using for an ftp server? You mention that
"you" have full access to the server, but are the ftp user permissions
set that way as well? What is the ftp user's home directory set to?
Are you sure there's actual data in variable vHTML?
