Could you explain the equivalents of 777, 666, 755 etc. in iftp as the program only uses check boxes - thanks

From the numbers eg 777, 755.

1st digit = Owner
2nd Digit = Group
3rd Digit = Global

Read = 4
Write = 2
Execute = 1

These add up to the number so:-
7 = Read, Write, Execute
6 = Read, Write
5 = Read, Execute

Try one of these calculators to get the idea:-
