Files rights and AFP

Had a problem crop up yesterday on a NW6 SP2 server which had AFP
Native
File Access installed, but not in use. It looks like the native file

access creates a "Network Trash Folder" and grants [root] RWCEMFA
rights
to the folder? I found out because a user who should have no rights
to
any of my servers managed to try and infect the server with the
"Nimda"
virus. Fortunately I have a virus scanner running on the server which

caught it.

This is my first foray into this forum, so I apologize if this is old
topic.

Yep. If not using NFA for Mac, change the trustee assignment to what
works
for you.
