File Access Rights/Windows
Setting up a RH server to store files for Windows (2000 and XP) workstations. Using Samba, it all works well, however . . .
1. I have set up private and shared directories. For the shared directories I ran chgrp and chmod, each with -R in order to effect the necessary acces rights. All was good until the first user created a new file. The rights did not apply to new files and no one else can access the newly created file in the shared directory. How do I set it up to "grandfather" rights onto any new files or folders within the already shared "space"?
2. Long file names with spaces. The Windows users use lots of lfn's but I have found that to access them from the linux end I have to enclose them in quotes. It works, but is there a better way to do it?
