I found a fix in another thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...le+permissions
It makes me ask another question though. If I set up the following:
path = /home/quickbooks
writeable = yes
inherit permissions = yes
directory mode = 0770
valid users = ...
and do the:
chmod -R 2770 /home/quickbooks
command. Why does the permissions on the filename.qbl end up being -rwxrw----. I would have expected -rwxrwx---.
Also I am curious about what the 2 in chmod -R 2770 means. my understanding is that it is the set group id by reading the man page for chmod. This does not make sence to me.
These questions are out of curiosity more than need. My actual problem has been resolved.
