Sharing FilesWednesday, June 17, 2015 1:47 PM
By default, your home and scratch directories are readable only by you (however, note that you can change this).
In order for other users to read your files, they need to be in a directory that has read permissions enabled.
YourNetIDHere is such a directory. After copying or moving your files to that directory, you need to
enable read permissions for the files themselves. You can do this by typing
cd /public/YourNetIDHere share -f MyFile
MyFile readable by all other users, or
cd /public/YourNetIDHere share -f MyDir
MyDir (and all files and subdirectories within) readable by all other users.
share script has additional options to enable read permissions only for particular users or groups;
share -f MyFile -u user1 user2
share -f MyFile -g group1 group2
For more information, type
man chmod, or
man setfacl; also see
File system permissions.
