i have one folder "shared", in this folder different users
can see different
subfolders, to not have every subfolder shared (every
shared folder is
visible in the rootdirectory of the server and this can
become visualy
impractical) i share the subfolders through the tab-
page "security" and tell
win2K there what person is allowed in the folder or not
i achieved all this, everything is working, every user can
access his/her
folders but when you want to open a file it sais "this is
read only" and
"cannot open this file"
if i share everything with the tab-page "filesharing"
everything works just
what am i doing wrong?
i hope i explained it good enough and that someone out
there can help me out
thanks in advance for your time

(win2k+sp4+latest updates)

If you wanted to set file permission for shared folder trough security tab.
Then while sharing give full control to everyone. This will not result in
giving full control to every one because security will be taken care by
NTFS security. ( more restrictive will get apply)
