Windows persistent mappings will have to do, although that doesn't
help
my Mac OS X users. I was ideally looking to make the process of making

the initial mapping as easy as possible: For instance, with shares on
my
Linux box, all I need to specify on the client computer (Mac or
Windows)
is

foo.new.ox.ac.uk/username

and give the password. A drive is mapped directly to the home
directory.
Since that is also CIFS (Samba), I was hoping this would have made it

into NFA's CIFS implementation. Apparently not. Since I have about 900

users with individual home directories, as it stands, students see
everyone else's home directory. Searching through 900-odd is bad
enough
(even in alphabetical order) but it turns out I can connect as one
user,
and read/write contents in another users' home directory. Are there
specific rights I need to apply to my USR volume?

Cheers,
James

For CIFS and AFP, standard Novell file system rights are used. For
NFA
for Unix, if using the default of Independent mode, you need to set
them individually per directory, as you would with any Unix
configurition.
