Problem with SFTP permissions

Hi all,

I am wondering if there is an easy way to set the umask for users using sftp to upload files to the server. The problem I am running into is that the permissions are too restrictive (644), but I need the group to have rw- as well.

I tried setting the users umask in ~/.bash_profile, without success.

My work around for now is to get the user to chmod any files they upload to 664.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
