Tried this, the storlines doesn't work, everything else OK

from ftplib import FTP
ftp = FTP('joemoney.net')
ftp.retrlines('LIST')     # list directory contents
ftp.storlines('STOR', 'sf.xml')   # Is this incorrect, it throws error>

   File "ftp.py", line 5, in <module>
     ftp.storlines('STOR', 'sf.xml')
   File "C:\Python26\lib\ftplib.py", line 470, in storlines
     conn = self.transfercmd(cmd)
   File "C:\Python26\lib\ftplib.py", line 356, in transfercmd
     return self.ntransfercmd(cmd, rest)[0]
   File "C:\Python26\lib\ftplib.py", line 327, in ntransfercmd
     resp = self.sendcmd(cmd)
   File "C:\Python26\lib\ftplib.py", line 243, in sendcmd
     return self.getresp()
   File "C:\Python26\lib\ftplib.py", line 218, in getresp
     raise error_perm, resp
ftplib.error_perm: 501 No file name

The file exists in the same directory as ftp.py
