| we use a Sun Sparc E450 Server as Fileserver (Solaris 2.8). I
| recently created a share for a project:
| [share name]
| force create mode = 0770
| create mask = 0770
| force directory mode = 0770
| It seems that powerpoint is doing something very strange, like
| creating it new file by just oping the file.
PowerPoint and most other PC apps renames the
input file to .bak and creates a new file to
put the edited data into.
You'll need to have the create mode(s) set to 700
for this share to keep the "new" files from being
readable/editable by member of the group.
Mine are 750, as I don't mind related
folks reading my files...
