In oder to support chmod in ftp session. The ftpd on your Solaris
must support that option. You will have to install WU-FTPD on
the Solaris machine itself, wu-ftpd does support chmod option.
wu-ftpd source could be found at www.wuarchive.com. The chmod
option is on the server side, not client side. So changing your
ftp client won't help. Just becarefull, enable chmod on ftp
session could open some security holes.
