heh.  to be perfectly honest, no, not at all.   :-)

if you could connect ok, log in ok, dir ok, get ok, but couldn't put ok,
i was betting on permissions or disk space.

can you describe what the resolution was?  i can't imagine why a
firewall rule would cause a 5xx error.  it would be a good opportunity
for me to learn something new.  can you ask him what the deal was?
