Re: openssh: Default umask for SFTP?

The issue is that when I SFTP a file onto the server, the default umask

This doesn't match my experience.

pegasus:~$ touch foo
pegasus:~$ ls -l foo
-rw-r--r-- 1 greg greg 0 Oct 11 08:37 foo

pegasus:~$ sftp greg@griffon

Perhaps your sshd daemon is being started with a umask of 077, which is
then passed down to the sftp-server child. Examine your start scripts,
and see whether putting "umask 022" (or whatever you wanted) in the
sshd start script helps.
