Windows Rsync Upload to Linux Rsync - permissions

Hey guys, I've run into a bit of a snag. The goal is to use cwRsync on my windows box to upload files to the linux box running rsyncd.

The problem comes down to file permissions. When I upload a new directory its permissions are set to drwxr-xr-x. However I need "write" permissions set on these folders for groups, and other.

I would like to stay away from running a chmod script every 5 minutes or so, but it that is what I must do then I will.

So my question is this. Is there a better way (possibly using rsync itself) to change the file permissions on the files/directories that are being uploaded from the windows box to the linux box.

Thanks so much for your time.
