FTP File Attributes on Finance Gateway servers

Hi,

We are currently pulling encrypted files from Finance FTP Gateways. When we login and look at the permissions of files placed we see that the files have the following flags

-ART------TCP

The 'T' flag is set once a file is downloaded from that FTP gateway.

Can anybody please explain the significance of these file attributes or direct me to any documentation?
Normally i have always seen a set of -rwxrwxrwx attributes on files.

Thanks,
Ravi

What FTP server are you using? A search for "Finance FTP Gateways" returns, well, this post.

Doesn't seem to be any public documentation or support. You will probably need to register with the vendor to get access.
