This one for Brett I suspect,

I'm quite happy using nano to edit files directly on the HAH (BBB version) but recently I tried using Textwrangler to edit a file. I can estabish a connection and see all the files but if I try to write, I get...

You have insufficient permissions to perform this operation on the server (application error code: 22803)

I can edit if I issue sudo from the terminal via ssh. It seems that textwrangler works with the OSX way of doing things but without giving me the option of sudo.

Is there any way around this Brett?



p.s. feel free to email me if you think it would be safer

Hi BrettThanks for the quick

Hi Brett

Thanks for the quick reply. Happy new year btw. I enable root access when logged in via terminal. My issue is trying to upload files using textwrangler (bbedit's little brother) I can connect and download but uploading is not possible. It's not a big issue though, nothing wrong with cut n paste
