umask on ftp

Hi experts,
Whenever I transfer a file to another server using ftp, by default the file is rw-r--r--. Would like to change the umask to 002 (rw-rw-r--). What is the command to do that?

Another question, if i manage to change the umask to 002, it will apply to all unix users? (eg. root, usera, userb will also generate file that is rw-rw-r-- using ftp?)

Thanks in advance!

Re: umask on ftp

Hi,
I did search some of the solutions in this forum. For the 1st example, it is regarding site umask. It is only a temporary solution and need to be set whenever file is to be transfer. I would like to change ftp files permanently to rw-rw-r--.


2nd example, the changes is made permanently but it is applied globally. Is there any method to change on specifically 1 unix user only?

Appreciate on any suggestions.

One option is to replace ftpd with e.g. ProFTPD (www.proftpd.org).

Re: umask on ftp

I came over with documentation regarding ftpaccess, is this included in the conventional ftp services?

I do not have this file in any of my directories.

Thank you.

The standard tru64 ftpd does not use an ftpaccess file.
