Copy Inhibit In NetWare 4.11

Greetings,

Is there anyway to disallow users from copying files from the NetWare directory if he has filescan and write access or   filescan access rights only to that directory ?

TIA

If he has write access then the user will be able to copy files.  If he/she only has filescan then they can't copy - all they will get is a file listing - they can't actually read the file.  Just ensure that they aren't inheriting rights - if you have a specific directory that you do not want people copying files from, then either make explicit trustee or adjust IRFs.

If you can read (open) a file, you can copy it!

Exactly, if you can Read it.  File scan doesn't actually allow for the reading of the file - it will just show you the file info from the directory tables.

Yes, tested it, whenever you are granted read access you can always copy the file. Now, is there an option to disable copy only and users have all other rights ? The objective is to disallow copying of files from certain NetWare files/directories only. The concern here is without read access, users will have problem running an application that require read access to the files/directories.

In this case, JBirkman is 100% correct - if they can read the file - they can copy it.  So, unfortunately, your answer is "no".  If they have to be able to read the file to run an application - then they most certainly WILL be able to copy it.

OK, so unless that is a third party utility that could implement copy inhibit with all other NetWare rights granted, there is no tools from Novell to do it.

Actually in Novell 3.12 it's already implemented by just giving the right copy inhibit to the file.

I wonder why copy inhibit was not implemented in 4.x
