550 error in Composer, Netscape 7.2, no such file or directory

550 error in Composer, Netscape 7.2, no such file or directory

550 error in Composer, Netscape 7.2, no such file or directory

(OP)
I have been publishing from Netscape 4.75 for years.  Ever since ver 6.1, I have not been able to publish from Netscape composer.  I would like to use Netscape 7.2 Composer for editing and for publishing.  I have checked with my ISP, and they say I have everything set up right.  However, whenever I try to publish I get an Alert:  "550 home/WWW_pages/donna/testing.html no such file or directory.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to correct this?
Thanks.

RE: 550 error in Composer, Netscape 7.2, no such file or directory

The error message indicates Netscape doesn't recognize the path you've entered as existing on the server.  The error could be in the path you are specifying in Netscape or the folder you are specifying may not, in fact, exist on the server.  It's a little hard to be specific because everyone's remote address is different, but the full path should look more like...
ftp://servername.com/home/WWW-pages/donna/
Don't put the filename in the path and be sure the path ends with a slash.  
Hope this helps.

Thank you Diane, for your comments.
In netscape dialog box for publishing, I have for the publishing address:  ftp://ftp.sonic.net/home/WWW_pages/donna/ and they ask for HTTP address of my home page, and I have entered http://www.sonic.net/donna/
I have no problem publishing from Front Page or WS_ftp or Netscape 4.72
In the error message they add the name of the file that I am trying to publish.
Do you have any other ideas?
I like the editor in Netscape 7.2 and that is why I want to publish from there instead of using FrontPage.
