To make an ftp server writable

I want to implement an FTP server on RHEL 5.8 system where the users can upload files either from RHEL or Windows systems but am not able to copy files to it from a browser session. For eg.

URL -,

I want to copy files from to it from my Windows Google chrome browser session. I have done following steps to make FTP server writeable on my RHEL 5.8 server:-

mkdir /var/ftp/incoming
chgrp ftp /var/ftp/incoming
chmod 730 /var/ftp/incoming
semange fcontext –a -t public_content_rw_t ‘/var/ftp/incoming(/.)?’
setsebool –P allow_ftpd_anon_write on
Changes in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.coonf

Can you please let me know if I have missed out anything or some wrong steps that I am not able to copy files to the /incoming folder from the Windows browser session.

Please revert with the reply to my query.
