[woops, had them swapped!]
Glad you are using it! The problem is you are trying to use the hyphen-style srm commands instead of the "hyphenless" ones. I prefer the hyphenless myself. Here are some examples.
hyphenless: srmsls, srmmkdir, srmrm, srmrmdir, srmmv
hyphen-style: srm-ls, srm-mkdir, srm-rm, srm-rmdir, srm-mv
The ones without the hyphens are happy without the more verbose ?SFN= url syntax, but the ones with the hyphens need the SFN syntax. If (as you did) you try to do srm-mkdir without the ?SFN syntax then the client command will try to guess what you meant an inject a hypothetical ?SFN= string into the url. That may or may not work. In this case it doesn't work. Here are the two syntaxes for urls, with and without the SFN string. The more verbose format should work with either style, hyphenated or not.

>>> Hey Richard, could I store an image of the virtual machine we're using for the analysis workshop on the SRM? That way I can point people that are participating remotely and have grid access to where to download it. Are there any special instructions/permissions I need to upload a file? Where would be an appropriate spot on the hard disk?
