i share files with a friend from his macbook to my mac mini over my wireless connection.
i set my public folder as a shared folder & turned on file sharing in my system prefs.
my friend can copy files to my public folder, but when i try to open them they are all read-only (showing as "nobody - read & write, staff - read only, everyone - read only). not sure why it says "nobody".
user permissions are set to read & write for my user, staff, and everyone for the public folder in system prefs.
i even tried adding a new sharing user for him with a password. he can connect fine & copy files fine, but when i try to open them they are read-only. the folder itself and all files inside are set to read-only.
how can i make these files come over as read-write for me, so i don't have to set the permissions manually for every file? thanks!
