Re: File permission problem
I think about a year ago there was a patch added to the cygwin core to
allow you to use 'umask' to change apparent permissions on a FAT32
partition. The idea was you could then do something like:
umask 077; ssh foo.bar.com
I do not know if this code is still in the cygwin libraries, and if it
will solve your problem.
