Steve -

I bookmarked this page long ago, perhaps this information will be helpful.

Note that IFS permissions work like Unix permissions.

Read the help about CHGPGP. The user ID which FTP's the file will be the owner of the file, but through experimentation I have determined that if the primary group on the folder will also be granted permissions to any files created in the folder.

Is there a way for a file that is FTPed onto a system to have the same authority
as the directory that it is FTPed into?

We have an IFS directory structure /DirA/DirB/DirC.
All 3 directories are owned by a single user profile with all data and object authorities.
*PUBLIC is secured by *AUTL. Existing files are secured in the same manner as the directories.

We are implementing a new process where others can FTP files into /DirC for processing.
When a new file is FTPed (from a non-IBM i system), it arrives in /DirC with owner
of the user profile used for the FTP session (this is
OK) but *PUBLIC gets *R data authority instead of inheriting the *AUTL from DirC.
We would like for these new files to have *PUBLIC *AUTL data authority without
resorting to creating a process to change the file authority each time it is FTPed.

We thought the new file would have the same authority as /DirC but apparently not. Any ideas?
