I'm aware of the CACLS tool but can't get it to set share permssions on a directory.
I'm not interisted in the NTFS permissions; I can set them fine. What I want to do is remotly, via the command line, give certain staff access to certain shares on the network.

Is there any tool that can do this? Freeware if possible. I've checked the resourse kit but can't find anything applicable.

    There is a tool from MS that was developed for NT but you can test to see if it still works.;en-us;172599
