It's not as if FileZilla has a lack of understanding with Power i directory inheritance.
I have similar issues with the tool on AIX (power) servers. Always have to set the permissions after.

I think the problem is using FileZilla to create *new directories* in the IFS. I do not think FileZilla handles the IFS permissions correctly when it creates a new directory. (I do not have any problems with using FileZilla to move *files* between my laptop and the IFS.)

I just ran a couple of tests from my laptop.

Test #1
FileZilla works with files


1. Use ACS to create directory named mydir in /www/mywebserver/.


1. Use FileZilla to upload a new file named test.html into /www/mywebserver/mydir/.


This worked. I was able to see the /www/mywebserver/mydir/test.html page in my browser. I received no 403 Forbidden messages.

Test #2
FileZilla does not work with directories.


1. On my laptop, I created a new directory named newdir. I put a file named test.html file inside the newdir directory.


1. I then used FileZilla to drag the newdir directory from my laptop and drop it into the /www/mywebserver/ directory in the IFS. Filezilla created the newdir directory in /www/mywebserver/. FileZilla moved the test.html file into /www/mywebsever/newdir/.

This did not work. I received a 403 Forbidden error message in my browser. This was confirmed when I looked at Google developer tools.

I use Fliezilla like this all the time Kelly and I don't recall having any issues.

By the way, I think my 403 Forbidden errors might have been cause by:

1. Using FileZilla FTP Client to move folders from my laptop to the IBM i. I think FileZilla messes up permissions when it creates directories in the IFS.
2. Making various changes in the HTTPAdmin page without fully understanding the changes. I am new to web server administration. It’s possible that I messed something up without realizing it.
These two are not mutually exclusive.
If one or both of these were the cause, it would explain why I no longer had problems after I created a fresh instance of the HTTP Server (with no admin changes) and used IBM Access for Client (ACS) to create new directories and upload files in the IFS.
