ftp proxy - chmod command error


I'm using ftp proxy at MWG but there is an error when I try to use chmod command.

Here is an output from FileZilla ftp client:

File upload:

Instead of the server name, ftp proxy put there chmod command. Is it a bug in ftp proxy?

Thank you

Best regards

Re: ftp proxy - chmod command error

Hallo Petr!

I can confirm that SITE CHMOD does not work with MWG7.x. At the moment we are discussing whether this is a bug or a missing feature.

To keep track of the progress of this issue, please file a ticket at

Tell your support contact to open a case in our bug tracking system and refer to this discussion.
