Not able to copy file through ftp

hi all, 

i was trying to copy a file using ftp from my windows xp to solaris 10 residing on virtual machine,but i am getting the below error,i cannot copy the file to any directory but i can copy the same file to /tmp . 

C:\Documents and Settings\chetan.RAJNIKANTH>ftp 
Connected to 
220 shankar FTP server ready. 
User ( root 
331 Password required for root. 
230 User root logged in. 
ftp> lcd c: 
: File not found 
ftp> lcd c:\ 
Local directory now C:\. 
ftp> bin 
200 Type set to I. 
ftp> hash 
Hash mark printing On ftp: (2048 bytes/hash mark) . 
ftp> mput xm* 
mput xmms-1.2.11.tar.bz2? y 
200 PORT command successful. 
553 xmms-1.2.11.tar.bz2: Read-only file system. 

kindly provide an suitable solution
Anonymous FTP on solaris does not create upload (incoming) directory. 
Go and change it in /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess, then restart FTP service: 
pfexec svcadm restart ftp 
thanx for the response predrag, 

sorry ,there are so many entries in that file ...which one to edit.

wehat about: 
grep incoming /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess ? 
have you tried it? have you read my post carefully? 

the line containing incoming is like this below 

upload class=anonusers * /incoming yes ftpadm ftpadm 0440 nodirs 

previously i have copies many files to solaris machine from windows,but from today morning it is giving the problem. 

what should i edit in the above line of /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess
