Chapter 36. Sharing Windows 95 Peer-to-P... > Configuring Access Rights

Configuring Access Rights

As with most file systems, the permissions for shared drives in Windows 95 travel downward through the directory structure. When you grant a user full access to the root of your C: drive, you also grant that user rights to every folder and file on that drive. In Microsoft networking parlance, these rights are called implied rights. NetWare calls them inherited rights. When you use share-level access control, these rights, once granted, cannot be rescinded by any processes, other than disconnecting the user or ceasing to share the drive. You cannot grant or deny rights to individual files in Windows 95, as you can in Windows NT and NetWare. If you share a subdirectory of a previously created share and assign it more limited rights, the network user then has access to two different shares, each with its own permissions. The rights of the original share are unaffected by the creation of the new share.
