Full Version: Can A Plain Text Filename Define Access Rights?
OESF Portables Forum > General Forums > General Discussion
Ian
I have found that if I call a file "qslamrpt.pl" on my SD card, I cannot read it through the Samba USB TCP/IP connection; I get "access denied". This happens to be on my SD card, which is formatted to ext3, although I'm not sure if this is relevant.

If I rename or copy the file to [so far] anything else, e.g. "qslam_report.pl", it works fine and I can edit it through the samba server as I normally do (using a Windows PC).

This sounds completely mad, but I have checked it several times. I don't know if it persists through a reboot but I'll test it next time I have to reboot.

Can anyone explain what might cause this odd behaviour?

Thanks!
Ian.

Yes, all unix files have various owner/group and world access rights.
Look at the chmod command
