FTP - Can't drag files to folder - Mac

Hi,

Just trying FTP for the first time to update tracks from a Mac to an Android phone (google Pixel 4a).  I connected to the server ok but can't drag anything to the folder, even though I've got that checked in the Foobar settings.  If I open up a info tab in Finder it says read permission only.

Anyone got any idea what I might be missing?

Thanks!

Moving this to Mobile, since the issue is really about the Android version's FTP server, rather than the macOS desktop version.

Incidentally, the macOS version doesn't really support dragging files outside the app, as I guess it doesn't implement generic file objects into its pasteboard export for that purpose.

Thanks, I should have been a little clearer.  Foobar2000 is on the android phone, but not the Mac.  I was experimenting to see if I could drag files/folders from the Mac (Finder window) to the Foobar Music Folder using FTP.   It won't allow me to write to the folder.

I'm pretty sure that I've got the server settings correct on the Android, but I wonder is there is an overall setting on the phone that isn't allowing me to write to it.
