Matt Gilbert An attempt at techy stuff

This may well be already known but it took us a little while to figure out.

When using the BizTalk FTP adapter to write files to a Unix FTP server you may have to ensure the recipient of those files has the right to read/delete them.

When you ftp files, the master ftp configuration file determines the permissions that those files will have. You can set the permissions yourself by using a version of the umask command in the Before Put property of your FTP send port.

e.g. site umask 000

This will give everyone permission to do anything with the files. Other numerical values will have different effects (see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umask).

Equally of course, anyone writing files for you to pick up will likely have to do the same.
