RE: Windows Sharing File Permissions

 Hi Al,

The permissions on the share will allow users to access the shares from the
network. The permissions on the file and directory structure will allow you
to enable a file based access control. The file permissions can be much more
fine grained than the share permissions (which is basically all or nothing).
The share and file permissions is an and function. You need access to the
share and access to the file to be able to read or write to it.

Hope this answers your questions.

Hi All,

In Windows, there are two places to set shared folder permissions in the
Folder Property Box, on the Security Tab and on the Sharing Tab under
permissions.  What is the difference between these two? Which one has
priority?  Why are there two?

I know this seems like a very basic question but I cannot find good
documentation on this.

Thanks for your help,
