summary: Control of file permissions in PSCP and PSFTP
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

It would be nice if PSCP and PSFTP could allow user control of the file permissions on files they create during transfers in both directions.

As of r9260, permissions are preserved (modulo umask) by the Unix file transfer tools, in both directions and in both SCP and SFTP protocols, and the Windows tools use a non-configurable default (which is 0644 when we're speaking SCP, and unspecified in SFTP meaning that the server will use its default).

It would be nice to have more control over this. Thoughts include:
