Filr utilizes the security and access controls of the NSS or NTFS network file system where it is deployed. In other words, if your network file system is not secured so that only the right people have the right access to the right places, Filr can dramatically expose these security shortcomings.
Using File Reporter, use any of the following applicable Permissions reports on each network location you want to enable for Filr remote access and sharing:
Assigned NCP Permissions: Assigned Novell file system rights and trustee assignments for all directories and subdirectories from a specified path.
Assigned NTFS Permissions: Assigned Microsoft file system user permissions for all folders and subfolders from a specified path.
Permissions by Path: Effective rights to the Novell file system or the permissions to the Microsoft file system according to the paths you specify.
Permissions by Identity: Effective rights to the Novell file system or the permissions to the Microsoft file system according to the identities you specify.
Based on the findings of the reports, make any needed adjustments in permissions.
NOTE:You can ensure that home directory and group directory rights are correct using Storage Manager. See Section 3.2.1, Ensure or Correct Home Directory Rights and Section 3.2.2, Ensure or Correct Group Directory Rights.
