right, that is what I am doing. Going under remote, then permissions.
Click inside the appropriate boxes then clicking o.k.

that is when I get the error about  UMASK, I have contacted the
hosting company the site is on to see if it is something they can
change on their end.

am I doing everything right from my end?
