The FTP client that is being used is the one that expects UNIX-like file permissions. The NetWare FTP Server by default sends NetWare trustee rights along with the files, so this might be incomprehensible to your FTP client.
Resolving the problem
Refer to the following:
Why am I not able to see directory listing in my FTP client even after connecting to the NetWare FTP server?
Explanation: The FTP client that you are using might be one that expects UNIX-like file permissions. The NetWare FTP Server by default sends NetWare trustee rights along with the files, so this might be incomprehensible to your FTP client.
Action: Set the PSEUDO_PERMISSIONS parameter to ON in the configuration file (Default = sys:\etc\ftpserv.cfg). Set the PSEUDO_FILE_PERMISSIONS and PSEUDO_DIR_PERMISSIONS parameters based on the kind of permissions you want to display for files and directories in the FTP client.
