Sure.  Don't tell rsync to preserve permissions.  This precludes the use 
of the "-p", and "--perms"options, and the "-a", and "--archive" options, 
which imply them.  If your wording means that the permissions on the 
source are not appearing on the destination, change "precludes" to 
"requires" and "and" to "or" in the sentence above.

If I sync a filesystem using ssh to an remote server, all
filepermissions on the remote site are gone.
Is there a chance to preserve the permissions using ssh ?
Thanks C. Zimmermann
