2. Define file permissions

This section describes how to define read and write rights. The following points indicate when or why you may want to set these file permissions:

  • Regardless of the USERCTRL setting, if you need for any user other than the user that installed the Transfer CFT to start Transfer CFT or Copilot server, you must define file rights for at least one user with - at a minimum - rights access to the runtime directory.
  • When USERCTRL is set to YES, in addition to any user that will start Transfer CFT, you must define read/write rights for files to be transferred for any users who will perform transfers.
  • When createprocessasuser is set to YES, your must define read/write rights for the configuration files (e.g. communication file, partner file, and so on).

UNIX tasks
