There's no way to do it in FTP (there's no mechanism for specifying
protections in the FTP protocol).
I assume then that the protections that the Unixm's ftp uses are
defined/stated/set somewhere within the Unixm. Any ideas on where this
is done? Is it a special default for ftp or just a unix-wide system
I just looked at the ftpd sources, and it appears to use the system
default. It uses fopen() to open the file, and this doesn't provide a
way to specify the protection.
