Make utorrent create files with write permissions

Recommended Posts

I used to use transmission but my private tracker has it blacklisted.  I have been trying several different clients but I keep running into a problem with permissions.  the files are created without write permissions for group and others set.  I want other users to have access to the file so I need to create stuff with 666 permissions.  how do I change this?  I've tried everything I could thing of including changing the user's umask and the system default umask.

Try setting the umask of the process that invokes utserver to what you want, or if you invoke utorrent through a script, change the umask within that script just before invoking utserver.  This should set torrent data files to the desired permissions, while utorrent server system files like settings files will not be affected.
