Re: [Nautilus-list] FTP file permissions

I want to be able to upload cgi scripts to website through FTP and make
them executable.  I would also like to be able to view the permissions
of files already on the site.

I don't need to see or change ownership information, just
owner/group/others permissions.  It seems like this should be possible,
since FTP supports the chmod command, and most other graphical FTP
clients allow you to do this.

Thanks for your help!
