WHY IS WINSCP CHANGING MY HOME DIRECTORY AND SUBS RIGHT'S when I logg inn.
MY linux home directory have the linux right's 711 with the command chmod 711 -R "HOME".

Every time I logg in with WINSCP 3.7.5 Build 294(latest) the program is changing my home
directory and all my file and subdirectoy's to the linux right to drwxr-xr-x or to 755.

How can I avoid this happening or is it a "bug":

Best regards

WinSCP does not do anything like it. Either it is done by the SSH or SFTP server or by some startup script.

SFTP server can done it. Or it can be done from non-TTY-specific stratup script.

What is your SSH/SFTP server? Have you tried any other SFTP client?

Thanks for your fast replay!

My linux server is cube.iu.hio.no.

Do you know any other good SFTP client I could test this on ?

For the testing it does not have to be good one Smile Try PSFTP.

I guess it's OpenSSH !?!

I have also testet loggin with PSFTP which also changes my permission, but to 751 instead of 755 like with WINSCP.

I have also asked the Unix ADMIN at my school, but he don't know either, so if you could Guide me on finding why this is happening it would be great !!!
