I'm tryng to share folders from an 10.8.3 imac to users in my LAN (using bot mac and windows) I'm having this problem:

1) Mac users can access the share using afp:// but

when they create new folders the permission are: drwxr-xr-x so no other can write those folders

2) PC users can access the share using smb:// but

when they create new folders the permission are: drwx------ so no other can read/write/execute

all user belong to the same group and the shared folders are owned by that group


I have create a file /etc/launchd.conf with umask 002 reboot but nothing has changed

I THOUGHT THAT MAKING SHARES IN MAC SHOULD BE EASY BUT IT SEEMS SOO HARD :-)

1) is the expected way for OSX - how are Windows users mapped to OSX users on the server and how are the shares made and setup? – Mark May 3 '13 at 11:27
    
HI, I have created all the single users and a group from control panel (for users I have selected "only for sharing" type. Then created the folders and used osx control panel "file sharing" feature. Also I have changed the owner of the folder to the group. – Francesco Pensabene May 3 '13 at 12:32
    
You need to use an access control list for this -- see this previous question – Gordon Davisson May 3 '13 at 14:59
