Re: read/write permision Issue

Since the directory already has rwxrwxrwx (777) permissions the test1, test2 and test3 users (and ALL other users) already have read/write access to this directory.


Are you looking for an alternative to the 777 permissions?  If so you may want to investigate ACL's.


The man pages for getact and setacl would be a good starting spot.
