Openssh latest ssh daemon

thanks shrekkie but i can't find any mention about ability to set file permissions through FTP client which is the most important area atm - as there are plenty of ftp servers out there that fill the other requirments but very fewi have seen with the ability basically to allow chmod (a *nix term but you know hat i mean ) does OpenSSH support this??

If you run cygwin on windows, you can run vsftp. A super fast, super secure ftpd. It's used by many big name sites that run public FTP servers.
