Defumask and upload directive in ftp


I'm aware that this question has been raised earlier and the solution provided has not helped me. So, the issue is that I'm trying to set a defumask to files transferred via ftp to be 002 so that the group may have write permissions to the files uploaded. We have local/system users uploading files.

No matter what combination of defumask and upload directive I try the permission of the uploaded file is 644. The users umask is 002. My ftpaccess file is as follows

# ident "@(#)ftpaccess  1.2     03/05/14 SMI"
# FTP server configuration file, see ftpaccess(4).

class           realusers       real            *

Well I have update 4 while you have update 10. Your ftpd does have -a set just like mine. I used ftp to put a test file in /tmp... in had no group write bit set. I deleted it.
I added "defumask 007" to ftpaccess and retried the test. This time I had group write set. If this doesn't work for you I don't know why.

Ok, now there is a interesting development. When I upload files to /tmp ,the permissions are 664 as I wanted. However, when the user is uploading the files to his home directory they get the permissions as 644.

Ex : User1 is ftp'ing to the server, logged in successfully. He is uploading a file ( which is 777 ) to his current location ( home dir ) and the permission comes up to be 644. I have checked the umask on the user it is 002 and when he created files locally in his home directory they end up 664.

Stuff uploaded to my home directory is also following the defumask setting just as well as /tmp does.
