Shared Folder Access Problem

I have a new Win2000 server system at my company. I am a system administrator, and have configured the Win2K machine as a domain controller.

I want to setup a shared user file area like this:
---User Area
      \
      \---share1
      \
      \---share2
..etc., with the top level shared for network access.

I want to set permissions like this:
- Top folder & entire sub-tree - admins have full control access.
- Domain users & guests have read & execute, list contents, and read access for top level and sub-tree.
- Specific users have full control access only to the sub-folder assigned to them.

I tried to do this by setting myself up a user account. I tested the security settings; when logged in to the server itself (where the share is located) as a user, the security settings work as expected - I can have my way with the folder set up for the user I logged in as, but I can only view the contents of the other sub-folders under the top level share.

When I log in from my workstation (a Windows 2000 Professional machine), I can access the share, but I can only read and list folder contents, even for the folder that the user I logged in as was assigned full control access to.

Why would it work locally but not remotely? Is this a policy issue? Is this an inherited permissions issue? Is something to do with logging in from my workstation?

Please help!

I uncheak the inherited permissions always and apply them manually, going into the advanced button to propogate to sub directories.  Also, Make sure you haven't set share level permissions which might override file level permissions when connecting remotely

The shared permission are other permision than the NT permissions. Under the share tab you find also permission settings. These are the permissions to set.

Check also if everyone can access the computer from the network, that's a policy that you can find under control panel => Administrator tools => User and local policy..
