I can see that you can mount an FTP server with read access, I was wondering if there is anyway to mount with write access as well? Are there any programs available that do that? I do web design, so something like this would help immensly.

Thanks!

This is typically a function of the server itself. You will not be able to control it externally from the client. The server set up determines whether the clients have read access, write access or both. If instead of being the client you are providing the server, you can set it up this way. I run the PureFTPdManager FTP server on my Mac and have set up a writable "incoming" folder for people that connect to it.

I use CyberDuck. I don't know why OS X only lets you read FTP servers that you connect to through Finder.
