Hi,
I am uploading a file (both with a script and manually in winscp) from a windows server to a unix server.

No matter what options I choose in Preferences/Transfer, I always get the file transferred as rw-r--r--

I can manually change permission however to eg rwxr-xr-x

If I manually change permissions, the upload the same file again and overwrite, then the changed permissions stay. If I delete the file then upload, it goes back to rw-r--r--

Any ideas how I can force permissions automatically or why it isn't working?

Am using 4.2.2 build 480

many thanks
Rob

Follow up - I have discovered the permission= option inthe script, but it doesn't seem to work:

Synchronize remote -mirror -delete -criteria=size -permissions=755

This does the synchronize but permission of the files are still rw-r-r ie 644

Any ideas what I am doing incorrectly?

(Having searched for similar problems I think this issue should be moved to the scripting forum please)
thanks

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

After the transfer the directory looks like this:
<invalid hyperlink removed by admin>
sorry it didn't upload well but you can see the permissions are rw-r--r-- on the two files uploaded.

Here is the batch file that initiates the transfer:

winscp.exe /console /script=ftp.txt /log=c:\log.txt

and here is ftp.txt:
option batch on
option confirm off
open test_ftp
Synchronize remote -mirror -permissions=777 -delete -criteria=size
exit

Many thanks for any help you can offer

Follow Up:
Using the parameters above I uploaded to a folder with some existing files. The ones that were already there were updated, and kept their rwxrwxrwx permissions. The brand new files still got rw-r--r--

Can you help please?
thanks

I wasn't aware that you use FTP protocol. With FTP the option is not supported for put command. I have updated documentation to reflect that. You can use chmod command though.
