What can cause the famous "error encountered while setting."

Hi there,

I've read through the forums regarding the famous "error while setting permission and or timestamp" message and I know that setting the options to ignore these messages is the answer. But what on an FTP server causes this to occur? I need to be able to setup a test FTP server that makes WinSCP generate this message, but I don't know how to configure the permissions/settings to do so. Any advice on how to do this?

Thanks, Martin. I read that link you sent me quite a few times before posting, but the answer filnally cliked once I saw you phrase it a different way. But it's clearly in the documentation already.

Thanks again

OK, so while I understand what you mean by your answer, I'm not sure how to implement it on a Linux server. I've tried looking it up, but my Google-fu may not be good enough to ask the correct question in this case.

How can I set permissions on a directory that would cause the above behavior?

Thanks!

I'm not sure what piece you are missing. The key point is that the file has to be owned by another user!
