Note that "Set Upload Permissions..." sets the umask for further uploading
of files.  If you want to set the permissions on files that are already on
the remote machine, you use the "Set Permissions..." command.

Huh?  No, "read" is 4, "write" is 2, and "execute" is 1.  "Owner" is the
left-most digit in the mode, "group" the middle digit, and "everyone" the
last digit.

No, that would be a mode of 774.  755 is owner - read, write, execute;
group - read, execute; everyone - read, execute.
