Changing File Permissions on a Remote FTP Server

Some FTP servers allow the modification of permissions of the files served over the FTP protocol. This protocol feature is accessible directly in the FTP file browser dialog box by right-clicking a tree node and selecting the Change permissions menu item.

In this dialog box, the usual Unix file permissions Read, Write, and Execute are granted or denied for the file owner, owner group, and the rest of the users. The aggregate number of permissions is updated in the Permissions text field when it is modified with one of the checkboxes.
