F-secure file transfer

When dragging an executable file to transfer using F-secure SSH file transfer, it will not keep the executable attributes. I can't find within the Preferences where one could preserve attributes when transferring? Is it possible to preserve attributes?

    F-Secure SSH has not been supported/developed for more than 5 years. It has been sold!


    What OS is the Server what OS is the Client?

    Do you run F-Secure SSH for Windows Server on the other end?



  • I'm running F-secure SSH on my office computer using Win XP. Am using it to transfer files from my computer to a Linux server... and to transfer files within the Linux server. When doing this with executables, it takes away the executable attributes when dragging it from one folder to another.

    Windows has no executable-bit so how should windows know the file is execuatble? and viceversa is the same problem.


    Also it might be a security feature that programs can not create executable-bit directly.
