    I want to change permissions on some folders but it won't let me, but when i go on a PC with a different FTP client it allows it??
    Is there a setting in Fetch to allow this??

    Hi,

    We'd like more information to help figure out the problem.

    Could you please send us a transcript of an attempt to change permissions that fails?

    To do this, try to change the permissions on one of the problem folders, then choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message.

    We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Hi,

    No problem on the multiple postings - I've cleaned them up.

    It looks like the server is saying it doesn't support the SITE CHMOD command, which is what we'd expect all FTP clients to use for changing permissions.

    Would it be possible to see the transcript of setting the permissions on the very same folder from the PC where it works?

    Thanks,

    Any thoughts

    Hi,

    Thanks for the additional transcript. It looks like the server does support SITE CHMOD, so the question is why you're seeing the difference in Fetch.

    Did you log in with the same username on both computers? If you used different usernames, it's possible that one username is allowed to change permissions, and the other is not.

    And if you were using the same username, I notice that you set slightly different permissions, on a different folder, in the PC transcript. Could you show us transcripts of setting the same permissions, on the same folder?

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire
