Somewhere on Altme Cal Dixon wrote: Some FTP servers allow setting modes via FTP. You can open a connection to the ftp site normally, then get the sub-port from the open port, then send a command like "SITE CHMOD 775 file" then wait for a responce from the server (which will usually be a numeric code, a space an english language result, and a newline). It's not very convienent, but it may be easier than telnet, if the FTP server supports it. but never tried it. -Volker
