Anyone use SimpleFTP?
I have a quesion regarding the rights to a file after you
ftp the file to a unix server.
Currently, after I FTP the file to the UNIX server, I am
the only person who can modify the file. How
do you make the file accesible to everybody?

Thanks

Hi waipahu,

The best Delphi component to IP layer to me is found at
http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/indexuk.htm
About the unix rights use this command to put the correct rigths
chmod o+r file1
where file1 is your directory and all files

This is the command line to be used at the unix machine,  more spefically at the location to put the uploaded files.
Delphi can't make changes at security rights to these files( inside a unix machine ), you should make it manually.

Shucks.....I know how to do it manually.
I need the file to be ftp so that everybody
can modify the file.
Anybody know anything about setting
up access rights for a file when you ftp?

waipahu, if I understood correctly you wants upload a file and permit that everyone write over, rename, read, etc.
Really the command to this is:
>chmod o+w incoming<
Where incoming is your "incoming" directory.
My previous mistake was imagine the default situation, where the upload directory has this user rigths.

If I'm wrong yet, really I misunderstood you.

I was talking to another co-worker and I think
you can't set access rights to a file on the
delphi side.  The access rights follow the user
doing the ftp.

thanks
