    Hi. I'm trying to get a small cgi script going on a site and I need to change some files to chmod 755. Can I do this via Fetch and how would I do that?

    Obviously I am on a Mac;)

    Thanks a bunch!

    i think when you set your upload permissions, the new dialogue box will shoe you the permissions you are sdetting ... isthis what you are talking about, either that or you need Telnet to go in and set permissions...

    You would select the CGI file and choose "Set Permissions..." from the Remote menu. In Fetch 4.0 it will show you the equivalent chmod command as you check and uncheck the permission boxes.

    Thanks for the replys, guys;)

    I need to set files to chmod 755 and 777. The remote "set permissions" box only offers a search/execute option. I take it I have to wait till 4.0 to be able to send the actual number commands? Or am I missing something here?

    To send the equivalent of "chmod 777" you'd want to check all the boxes. To specify 755, check all except the Group and Everyone Write boxes.
