IFS folder error

If you are trying to FTP a file into an IFS folder on AS/400 and receive an error, the naming format may not be set properly.

I want another company to put a file into an IFS folder but each time we try they get an error message that the folder does not exist or not authorized. Any ideas why?
If you use FTP and the naming format is set to library/file rather than IFS you would see that error. Set the naming format using the following line in the FTP script:

quote site namefmt 1
cd /mydirectory
