Any chance to configure sshd to allow anything more than object owner authority to be set on a file received using sftp?

Existing folders authorisation list settings etc seems not to be inherited
to the new file.

Are you sure that the file isn't using the authorization flags from the remote file? At least that's how I know that stuff to work on Linux.

The sender might also use chmod to set less strict rights after transfer.

Depending on the sftp-server being in use, a so called umask may be specified in its configuration to override a system derived default for creating local files:


This may or may not work, depending on how "forcefully" the sender tries to make both copies of the file have similar access rights.

On Linux, I usually deal with such situations by handling received files with the user profile which was used to log on via (s)ftp. Maybe this is something to consider for you, also?

:wq! PoC
