vsftp umask and permission problem


I am using vsftpd-1.1.3-8 on Red Hat 9 I have a small web site used for accessing howtos and docs at work. I have been trying to modify the umask in the vsftpd.conf to give both the owners and their group full access and the world read and execute access (775). I set the umask as follows in the vsftpd.conf:

local_umask=002

however I get the following when I upload files.

-rw-rw-r--

I have tried changing umask and permissions around but I just can't seem to get the files permissions to be 775.

Security is not a concern as it is behind a firewall and can not be accessed out side of our company.

Regardless of umask settings, files are not created with execute mode enabled.

Thanks unSpawn!!!

With security of this server not being an issue, is there a way to over ride this function? I need the files to be:

-rwx-rwx-r-x-

or

775
