Hi Juno,

First you have to create a group which will be the rights to access the /home/EDP directory:

# groupadd edp_readers

Change the /home/EDP ownership:

# chgrp -R edp_readers /home/EDP

Change write rights to /home/EDP:

# chmod 775 /home/EDP

Finally add a user to group "edp_readers":

Edit /etc/group file

append desired username at the end of "edp_readers" line. for example


it will add the user "msmarcal" at edp_readers group

To add another user just put a "," between usernames
