Hi All,

In Windows, there are two places to set shared folder permissions in the
Folder Property Box, on the Security Tab and on the Sharing Tab under
permissions. What is the difference between these two? Which one has
priority? Why are there two?

My understanding of these options has been that the Security Tab
controls the permissions on the local host, and the Sharing Tab
settings are strictly for the share. Eg. you could set up a directory
to be accessable to users over the network, but not accessable to them
if they were logged into the host locally... or vice versa.

I won't claim to be a Windows guru by any means, so this may not be
accurate, so usual disclaimers apply.
