Linux: Centos 4.3
No Windows server. Straight from the Linux file server to office PCs (Win7).
I found a permissions problem with a share on our Linux file server. I scoured the Internet for a solution and it kept circling around to the beginning. I guess that I donít know how to ask the question.
Originally the share was created to give both myself and one other full drwx permissions to that share. The intent was for both of us to be able to create folders, files, etc. with each of us able to edit each otherís folders and files. When I set this person up about 2 weeks ago I found that not to be the case. While we can both create folders and files neither of us have permission to edit each otherís folders and files. I canít edit hers and she canít edit mine. We need to be able to edit each otherís.
I looked at the share and accounts but couldnít see where to change the permissions or edit a file and, as I said, the Internet couldnít answer my question because I guess that I donít know how to ask it.
I have included what I hope is the information you need. If not please let me know. I deleted a lot of entries to shorten the reply and I changed the names to protect the innocent. Thanks again for your help. - Cloudthumper
