Re: when I try to open file with another user on CYGWIN , I get access denied message

Yes I did , but I can access only the current files. If they send new file next time, it won't get this setup so not possible to open.

I need something like folder permission and will apply to all files in it also must be apply to files will be created latter

Did you try
    chmod 755 foo.dat
on the file (assuming it's named foo.dat)?

umask 002 would have done that for you if you'd done it before
creating the file.

It's a bit odd to have +x set on a data file, so if it's not a dll or
exe, you might
want to make it chmod 644 instead.

I have windows 2008 server and external partner requested me to install
CGYWIN on it so they can send a file to via SSH. I created a domain user
called test1 and they sent me the public key and installed home folder. They
can send the file without any problem. I can able to read and delete if I
login to windows server with test1 username.

My problem is I can not open that files with another username. I have a
username call test2 and I need to login to windows server with this username
and run the script to import the files from test1 folder. I got access
denied message when I try to open it.

file permission show ;


I changed the umask in profile to 002 , but did not fix the problem.

Any idea?

By the way I have a little knowledge of linux
