Change file access rights on a UNIX server

Select desired file(s). From the Commands menu, open Properties.

Access rights are expressed through three digits; for example, the rights expressed above correspond to 644. The first digit represents rights of the owner, the second rights of group members, and the third rights of all other users. The three digits are used in the WISE-FTP log, and by some system administrators and Internet providers.

The following table indicates which options correspond to the respective digits. The third column gives possible values for owners, groups, and other users as they are displayed by a UNIX server. To see this file list, select Directory content.
