Hi All

We have a Linux NFSv3 Server that has ACL support. Unfortunately though the Leopard client is not able to set the ACL and thus new files are not inheriting permissions.

Has anyone ever encountered this before? We would love to have client ACL support for our Macs.

I have no experience with ACLs on Linux, but I note that the Wikipedia page about ACLs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Access_control_list) says:

Most of the Unix-like operating systems - Linux, FreeBSD or Solaris, support so called POSIX.1e ACLs, based on early POSIX draft that was abandoned. Many of them - for example AIX, Mac OS X, beginning with version 10.4 ("Tiger"), or Solaris with ZFS filesystem[1], support NFSv4 ACLs, which are the part of NFSv4 standard. There are experimental implementations of NFSv4 ACLs for Linux[2] and FreeBSD
