hello dear friends
am a newbi so do not bear with me! I run a linux sever that is administered by a friend of me. He prepares the chown and permissins - with the setgit-bit to on.
Well the trouble is that i get lost the setgitbit every time when i touch the permissions with FileZilla. Filezilla cannot handle the Setgit-bit. that i know allready
That is the terrible issue! Note - at the moment i do not have a access to the server with WinSCP -
since i have not a windows-machine but a opensuse-linux.
question: can WinSCP handle ( and cope ) with the SETGIT BIT!? as far as i know, winscp can set the Setgit. Filezilla cannot do this at all!
love to hear from you
Location: Prague, Czechia
Yes WinSCP does support it. Note that some SFTP server actually handle it incorrectly though. So it may not be Filezilla's fault after all.

Well my dear i allmost go crazy - sure thing:
I run a linux-root-server that is administered by a friend of mine. i controll the SFTP session - with filezilla (see all i mentione above a buddy told me: It's not actually filezilla, it's the umask that sftp uses.
he advice me to Change
Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server
to Subsystem sftp /bin/sh -c 'umask 0002; /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server'
in the server's sshd_config file, and restart sshd, and you should then find that sgid bit is preserved if the parent directory has it set.
well what do you think - can it be the stuff / and the things, that the buddy told me. -do you also think that the fault is rootet in the server-config?.
well i guess so - i am pretty sure
