File permissions

 
Can we add an option to automatically change the file permission (to 755 or whatever mentioned) on remote server a after file transfer (of may be certain kind say *.sh, *.ksh etc)

Program Ver. : Xftp 5

Hi NeOnD,

This feature is currently not available in Xftp 5, but we will consider adding it into our next major release.

Thank you for the suggestion!

Our plan is to release Version 6 sometime in either Q1 or Q2 of 2016. However, depending on the situation, we may release it a bit later or earlier.

What you are asking NeOnD sounds very dangerous. It could lead to so many accidents and security issues.
Unless there is like a triple warning "are you sure" are you sure...

My concern is Include Subdirectories doesn't work at all.
For me it works same as if it was unchecked. I still have to chmod if I need changes. I can confirm this bug, at least in Centos 6 when Xftp launched form Xshell.
Basically Change File Permissions doesn't do anything recursively.

Works like charm on FileZilla tho...

Re: File permissions

 
"Change permission including subdirectories" works fine on our end. Check to see if the subdirectories have directories for which the permissions are not allowed to be changed.

Or

If the status of the directory, for which you want to change the status of its subdirectories, is already set to the desired status, selecting "include subdirectories" will fail to change the status of the subdirectories. This may be a bug and we're looking into it.

Re: File permissions

 
Adam, I meant to ask to change permission (to 755) only certain files which we transfer from our local machine to remote (Unix) machine. Do not want Xftp to touch existing files/directories on the remote site. Ofcourse if I'm overwriting a file on remote host then will also expect to enforce the 755 perms.
