Default File Permissions?
I've been given the task of administering a Debian Linux server that runs pretty well and has only needed the occasional user added etc.
The server has a public folder that is accessible to everyone on the network (10 users). New folders and files are created all the time (very neat users!) and it seems that when 3 of the users create new files or folders, they are created with no 'write' permissions for other users in the group or 'everyone'.
As a result, the other 7 users can view these files and folders, but not modify them.
I can reset this by using chmod, but of course as soon as a new file/folder is created the problem starts again.
I'm a complete newbie and would appreciate any advice on how to view & change the default file/folder permissions for a user (if that is the problem!)
Thanks in advance
