ftp protocol and quot site chmod 0

i do have a problem with the transaction of pdf-files from a server to another. there was a guy who told me about this command wich i should build in my ftp.put()-method in java. the command called: about quote site chmod 0 filename..
i think its something about filerights but does someone know more about that?

thanx for help

quote site chmod 0 filename

will tell the ftp server to execute a 'chmod 0 filename', which basically removes all read, write, and execute rights for the filename you specify. Of course, this will only work if you have the appropriate rights.
