Q: Ok there has to be a way to do this… I just upgraded to tiger and I have some sharepoints that many users access. When a user creates a file or folder in the share point it gets the standard 755 umask. I used to be able to get around this by changing the AFP protocol to inherit permissions instead of POSIX behavior. Now the only way to get that functionality in tiger is to disable ACL’s!. When I use NT boxes I can add an “everyone” user into the ACL list. Does this exist in Tiger? Help!A: I believe what you’re looking for is actually are Access Control Entries (ACEs), which is an entry in an ACL that specifies access control entry for a group or a user. There’s a lot of information in the File Services PDF from apple, but briefly, Workgroup Manager supports both Explicit and Inherited ACEs. Specifically for what you’re looking for to be similar to the POSIX inherit permissions, would be to have your ACE apply to child folders and to child files.
