When you do your test xfer with a ftp client, do you enter in a name/pw
or just login as anon?

That statement doesn't make sense.  Do you mean you are denied access
when trying to transfer through FTP in a web browser?

If your manual ftp client (ncftp is best, IMHO) connects as anon, and
you check that your path to the file is correct, then it should all work
as exepected.

To help narrow things down, maybe disable your web proxy cache in the
browser temporarily.
