using chmod in securefx command line

Is it possible to use the CHMOD command as part of a securefx command line file transfer process?

I have a request to change permissions on a file after it has been uploaded to a Unix server. I would like to alter the permissions as part of the transfer instead of setting up a separate task to change the permissions after the completion of the upload.

In this particular request, the files to be transfered are indentified with wildcards and I do not want to modify permissions on a file in the destination folder that I did not initally upload.

I have found little documentation on this function, and what I found implies it is run stand-alone and not an option to the actual file transfer process.

(If it makes a difference I am using dos batch scripts, not VB or any other higher scripting language.)

Thank you in advance

Hi Roger,

Thanks for the post. SecureFX 7.2 has a new SFXCL /Chmod option which can be used to set permissions. for example:
sfxcl /Chmod 777 /S <session_name> test.txt
Is this what you are seeking?
