I have been running a secure web server in Server 2003 using NTFS permissions to dictate what groups can access.
Unfortunately due to the secure nature of the web server the only way to access and upload things to the server is via sftp, currently the sftp client used here is FileZilla.
While all the original files on the server were migrated by me the administrator and permissions were set up during the migration, unknown to me all the new files being uploaded were being owned by the user that did the upload and permissions set to whatever they were on the users local machine.
Now, as the title has stated I am looking for a way to force the permissions applied to the NTFS file structure to be inherited from the parent folder of where they are uploaded to.
I have come across a couple vague references to changing of the config file or try and script a force of file permissions in the scheduled tasks. Unfortunately I do not have enough experience with either to understand what would be required and how it would work to proceed on either front.
I would greatly appreciate any help or pointers to get me headed in the right direction.
