for multi-user environment
Authored by: jimr on Dec 02, '01 05:01:27AM
For management of a multi-user environment and setting a site policy, this is the way to go,

however, an individual user still has the capability to turn off sharing of the Public folder by setting the priveliges in Get info dialog.

Just turning off sharing of your individual Public folder to everyone is sufficient.

coincidentally, I had read a post on some other forum which made me aware that , in fact, though I was not allowing remote access of any kind, my Public folder was visible on the net.

So, the most important thing is the awareness factor.
This post also points out a critical difference between the "ordinary" Mac file sharing in OS9 and this current one. Guest access was activated in the guests tab and there was a specific checkbox which said "allow guests to connect" Now, "Public" is shared by default.

As some one else pointed out to me, "why do you think it is called PUBLIC?"

thanks for the wake-up call....
