Chapter 16. Networking > Users, Groups, & Privileges

Users, Groups, & Privileges

Network file and application sharing access is determined by the users and groups set up for the computer, as well as the privileges settings for each file or its enclosing folder.

Users & Groups

Each person who connects to a computer (other than with Guest access) is considered a user. Each user has his own user name or ID and a password. User names are set up by the computer’s system administrator, using the Accounts preferences pane. The password is also assigned by the system administrator, but in most cases, it can be changed by the user in the Accounts preferences pane when logged in to his account. This enhances security.
