#7923 new Bug report

SFTP Permission Handling

Operating system version: 7 Ultimate x64

Description (last modified by Alexander Schuch)

The SFTP permission support is a bit weird.
It shows owner/group, setgid/setuid bits but FileZilla doesn't support changing or preserving these settings on a file or directory.

For example chmod 2755 or 4755 or 6755 on a folder/file.
Uploading a file with the set(u/g)id permission bit set is not preserved. Or changing the Owner/Group/Other permissions (777-000) will also remove these bits forcing you to launch an external program to set those bits manually.

A switch should be used for SFTP based connections to support Owner/Group changes, as well as the 4th octal permission bit, since FileZilla executes the chmod command it should accept all 4 octal bits, and also support chown/chgrp

Command: chmod x750 "test"
Error: chmod: file mode 'x750' contains unrecognised user/group/other specifier 'x'
