Make a folder read-write for all users without using ACLs
Authored by: snowdog on Feb 05, '10 12:53:46PM

Couldn't get this to work under 10.6.2. Finder asks me to authenticate when I try to copy a file to "/users/shared/mnt". A get info on mnt shows that "everyone" has read access only.
I put the original directory into "/var" instead of "/var/root", could that have made the difference?

sorry, can't explain that. I tested this repeatedly and it works for me.
putting the folder in /var is ok. you can put it anywhere. just make sure you specify full path in the /etc/shared_folder file. you can't use symbolic links there so the path should be /private/var/mnt not /var/mnt.

Ok, got it working. Just changed protection on the "mnt" directory to rwx for everyone.
