Just getting into folder permissions and I have a few questions so far.
When adding a shared folder I have to set its basic permissions of owner/group/others. That is clear. Right after creating the folder I can go to ACL extra options. Do these options correspond to what I've setup when adding the folder? So I could for example change the folder group here from users to lets say 'mediaUsers' and give all of them the permission they should have? Am I correct?
I furtheremore noticed that I somehow cant access a folder via SMB share what I have read/write privileges for. As soon as I grant myself execution privileges, I can. Could anyone explain that behavior?
So for what do U guys actually use the privileges Button? I read many of you are using only that, but that means that you must grant everyone all privileges on system permission level don't you? Wouldn't it be way more secure to grant only the privileges needed for every user/group on system level?
Example1: I have a shared folder called 'user2'. Only user user2 should be able to access that folder.
So I would set system permissions to Admins: read/write; Users: no access; others: no access; And in ACL settings I would grant only user2 full privileges. No further settings in the "Privileges" box needed since system privileges totally match my needs.(?)
Example2: I have a shared folder called 'media'. Only users in the group mediaGroup should have access to it. So I create that folder setting system permissions to Admins: read/write; Users: read/write; others: no access; And in the ACL settings I would change the assigned group of that folder to mediaGroup with full privileges. No further settings in the "Privileges" box needed since system privileges totally match my needs.(?)
What are your thoughts on that?
