I connecting to my ftp server with Finder, entering login and password.

After establishing connection, i'm in read-only mode.

When i connecting with some ftp clients, like Cyberduck, i can write.

How it can be done, using Finder features only ?

According to this thread and this thread on the Finders FTP functionality is limited to read-only.

If you don't mind additional software to be able to use FTP in Finder, there are solutions for that too:

  1. Transmit's "Transmit Disk" feature
  2. ExpanDrive

Another possibility would be a free FTP implementation for MacFUSE.
