boy412,

I have tried using your config from your first post, with the exception
of making local_umask=0002 as mentioned in your last post, and setting
my own local_root as well. In my testing, it works the way you want it
to. I'm am not sure why it would be failing. Here's a few ideas /
points / reactions:

1. do: grep umask /etc/pam.d/* and see if there are any pam umask
settings there might be which could be influencing this.

2. Is it possible you have local_umask in your vsftpd.conf twice, and
you are only changing one occurrance?

3. I am testing with user whose shell is /bin/bash. Are you using
that as well?

4. You mentioned that you have the "sticky bit enabled on the parent
directory so the group is inherited." However, the sticky bit doesn't
serve that function (though that is a common mis-conception /
mis-label). The setgid bit serves that function. (see man 1 chmod).
Sticky bit appears in ls -al as "t". Setgid bit appears as "s". Which
one do you really have set? I tested with "s" (setgid) on the parent
(drwxr-sr-x). I would have tried "t" as well, just in case, but it
doesn't even seem to let me set that on my file systems (which are ext3
and reiserfs).

5. Which kind of file system are you using?

6. I note in your original description you talk about "uploading a
file to a directory" and in the last post you are talking about
"uploading a directory, and those directories should have permissions of
775." Just to make sure I'm not misunderstanding:
a. So now we're focused on results for directory permissions, not file
permissions. Right?
b. Technically ftp doesn't "upload a directory". It can make (create)
a directory and then upload files into it. But it has no command to
"upload" a directory. So what exact sequence of commands are you really
using? Or are you using some kind of smart client where you just
highlight a directory and click "upload" and it figures out the sequence
of commands to use? In that case, can you have that client save a log
of the actual commands it generates, of a simple example of this, and
supply that log here?

7. I presume you are using vsftpd packages as provided by SuSE, and
you have not recompiled from source code. ?
