I vaguely remember getting the permissions set up properly so that members of the correct group had the proper access to new folders but I can't recall the details. It's probably changed since then anyway. I rarely get involved in the IT/network stuff so my knowledge of this is mostly as an observer.
Do you SERVE files from a MAC? If so, what is the magic to have NEW FOLDERS / FILES that are created by people at large, inherit the permissions of the enclosing folder?
[I realize this is a side issue, but I've got my teammate working on PC now to get thru our deadline. In addition, the person that he traded places with climbed onto his mac and had exactly the same problem with a completely different file.]

I am now having some more significant problems running AC12 Teamwork using both Mac and PC.
