Proftpd and file permissions


Hi,
I'm running a SuSE 8.1 server.

I am trying to set up Proftpd, but I'm having a problem with file permissions.

Everyone can upload and download files. But when someone uploads a file, the file gets the wrong permissions.

I have the umask set to 755 (which is ok in my case since it is just a test server and it only holds some personal pictures, that's it.). But for some reason it still gives the wrong permissions.

For example: I can create a directory, but after that I can't access it. (I get an access denied.)

Oh and another problem: I'm using smartFTP to connect to my FTP server. That works ok. But for some reason I can't connect to my FTP server using Internet Explorer.

Your umask was 755??? Yikes! That's way off. Check here...

Scroll down to section 5.3.1 where it explains how to calculate the umask.

I know how the umask works. You don't have to explain me that.

And I also know that 755 isn't very smart for a FTP server. But since I'm testing it, that doesn't matter.

It doesn't matter what umask I want to set it to since every umask should work, right?
