Using the Indy component, user logs on and creates directories on the server. These directories are named in a listbox.

I have a stringgrid:
Row 0: File Name.
Row 1: Path of this file on the user's computer.
Row 2: Path to the location where this file is to be uploaded.
Row 3: Transfer Mode (ASCII or Binary).
Row 4: Chmod value of this file.

Files are uploaded and chmoded according to the stringgrid.

I am using Delphi XE.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

For your Indy FTP UpLoad you can use following unit, where upload is done in a thread:
FTP-Upload mit Indy als Thread

You can upload several files at a time by adding files to the upload list (procedure AddToFileList).
All files must be located in the same directory, which must be set by "SetSourceDir".
FTP configuration is loaded by "LoadConfig" out of an ini file. Adapt this procedure to load the configuration from your stringgrid.
Most of the time the thread is sleepinp. You wake it up with "StartUpload" and the transfer starts.
After a successful transfer the file list is deleted, status is set to ftpReady and the thread falls asleep again.
If the thread is sleeping and status is not ftpReady, then status shows the ftp action, which causes an error.
While uploading, "StartUpload" is blocked.

See below how you can add setting of chmod file permission to the above unit...
chmod (Setting File Permissions)
