Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have (2) samba servers running (debian Lenny/samba 3.5.6/openssh 5.5p1). I need a way for remote users to have access to the shared data (0777 permissions).
We were using WinSCP, but it does not allow drive-mapping in windows. It worked with only one or two remote users, but does not really fit the bill for a rollout to 10 - 12 remote users.
I found a piece of software called ExpanDrive, which uses an ssh connection, maps it to a windows drive, and then does transfers via sftp protocol. The only issue is that ANY time a remote user writes to a file it gets permissions of 0644. I have been trying to force the umask to 0000, which (I believe) would give 0777.
I have tried setting the umask in /etc/ssh/sshd_config with:
I have been trying to get this to work for a few weeks, and have tried virtually everything I can find, all without success. The software vendor for ExpanDrive has been no help - they are more on the Windows side of things. I have read so many posts on this issue my head is spinning.
Everyone that needs access are on windows based machines. Any suggestions on where else to look would be greatly appreciated!
