I have a Linux Apache server box on my LAN.  When I ftp files to my public_html directory from an XP box on the LAN, I usually have to go to the Linux box and set the read permissions of the newly uploaded files manually.  How can I configure either the XP or the Linux box to accept the incoming uploads as readable by others?  They are all arriving as forbidden by default.  Thanks for your help.

Providing the permissions are set to readable on the public_html directory, I believe it is down to your FTP client software to decide the default upload permissions.

You may want to browse your FTP client settings and see if these are specified anywhere. Or let us know what FTP client you're using.

there is a option in vsftpd to change the upload mask

local_umask=022

change that and you can have a 002 or something equal to that to have read permissions for everyone.
