    It's probably the umask of the unix user you are logging in with. There
    is a default umask for the system, but it can be changed in the user's
    profile. Do a man page on the umask command...

    Are you using any Samba daemons in the process? That can also change
    the permissions. If that's the case, you can modify the smb.conf file
    to do what you want...

    Subject: file permissions for new folder

    I use SSH Secure Shell (non-commercial) workstation for windows to
    upload files to a Unix server.

    I often make new directories by using the icon for new folder in the ftp
    window. I cannot, though, seem to control the permissions for these
    directories. Any idea on how to set my preference for permissions so
    that I don't have to change the permissions every time I make a new
