A simple way to set up a basic workgroup file server
Authored by: kikjou on May 16, '08 10:16:35PM

The problem is that in the non-server version of Leopard (and maybe the previous OSs too) a file or folder created by a user will get the permissions rw-r--r--. This means that other users cannot write to a file crated by the owner even if they are in the same group. It is possible that Sharepoint can work around this but a non-altered Leopard will not. There are probably other workarounds but the hint was about a simple solution using an existing Leopard installation.
