Lesson 8. Using File Services > Apple File Service

Apple File Service

Apple File Service, which uses the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP), has been the default sharing protocol for Mac OS X and its predecessors for quite some time. As Apple moves forward with an ever widening set of options when dealing with permissions, it is important to understand the basics of POSIX permissions and their role in Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server.

AFP Share Point—POSIX Permissions Versus Inheritance

When determining how to set inheritance with a share point, you will want to first consider whether you will be using ACLs to set access permissions. If so, you should use the inheritance that is associated with ACLs. If you will not be using ACLs to determine access to your share point, you will want to consider the specific options available for either the AFP or SMB sharing protocol.
