Controlling permissions of scp files on Windows

Sat Feb 26 16:14:00 GMT 2005

I am having a tough time figuring out how to automatically change the
permissions of files that are scp-ed over to a Windows 2003 Server
machine that's running Cygwin sshd. The files come out with
permissions of 644, and I need them to be 666. Is there a way to do
this without having to run a chmod on the files afterwards (even 664
if I can figure out how to have "everyone" be the group).

I had this problem with as well.
I've tried the commercial WinSSHD which does not have the permission
problem, but won't allow too many simultaneous connections, and I'd
rather not use a closed source solution.

Thank you in advance for your help


P.S. I have tried searching the archives and looking at the FAQ, and I
did not find anything. If I missed I apologize in advance, and I'd
appreciate a pointer as to where the answer is.
