I am trying to setup my first home server and haven't had too much trouble so far. However I can't seem to find a way to transfer files from my laptop (Macbook Pro) to the server.
I have been able to mount the drive and open the folder in Finder. When I go to copy a file I receive a popup window that states "Finder wants to make changes. Type your password to allow this." I then enter my laptop's password and receive another message saying "The operation can't be completed because you don't have permission to acces some of the items."
I am connected to the server using my registered user account, am running Ubuntu server version 12.04.2, and using webmin. Any help with correcting this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
