UNIX file protections?

How can I control the default file protections when I create Ultrix/Unix
files from my Symbolics using FTP or NFS?
Currently, when I save a new file from my Symbolics to my Vax [Ultrix]
via FTP, the newly-created file has the protection "-rw-r--r--". I'd
like to be able to restrict it to "-rw-------".
I don't know how to do it for FTP, but for NFS you can do it this way:
(setq nfs:*default-mode-for-files* #o600)
This is for brand new files. When superseding already existing files I
believe Symbolics NFS copies the mode from the existing version of the file.
