remember that I found a way to do it even in rebol... I had sent a ftp protocol patch which allowed files to be set as executable... once transfered... its quite easy.. my patch does crash rebol's ftp access at some point, as I did not put enough time into properly identifying tcp handshaking, but for any one who is just transfering a few files and has a decent connection to his server, it works. if the connection fails, just restart rebol and continue... ftp itself supports the chmod command, its just a question of sending it. -MAx
