files with permission problems


I see two sets of file permissions on a dir of files depending on user and file system.

1- seems normal.
2- has all question marks

if I am root or user on a non-server machine, or user on the server, I see this:
????????? ? ? ? ? ? documents-export-2012-12-05.zip
?????????? ? ? ? ? ? documents-export-2013-04-09.zip


but if I am root on the server I see:
-rw-rw-rw-. 1 john biggroup 3405783 Dec 5 2012 documents-export-2012-12-05.zip
-rw-rw-rw-. 1 john biggroup 3517302 Apr 9 07:02 documents-export-2013-04-09.zip:

any suggestions?

The distro and release: Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
That is the server.

One clarification:

All on the server:
as root the files are shown with permissions and owner info.
as user the files are shown with all question marks.

Thanks.

folks:

I fixed the issue. What I found when comparing the directory where these files resided was a difference with other directories that have no problem. The difference was that the execute permission was absent for all (user, group, other).
I gave the directory x permission for all and now the files can be see with all permissions by others.

Thanks for your replies.
