batch script to create a shared folder with permissions for everyone group

Hello,  I need a batch script to create a shared folder with permissions for the "everyone" group.  
I will be running this using psexec on several computers at once.  This way I dont have to kick the user.

hmmm that adds to the "everyone" group?
Yup, check it out.

It's the default and only group added to the Sharing permissions with that command.

ok, thanks, but i notice that it names the shared path folder "file" and not "testshare"
Just substitute the example with whatever name you like:


net share icecom4=D:\testshare

You can verify the results with:

net share

At a command prompt do a net share /?

Depending on OS version, you can set permissions as well.
Typo on my part. It was example I showed somebody else a while back.

@echo off
MD [directory]
CACLS [directory] /E /G everyone:[permission level (RWCF)]
NET SHARE [sharename]=[directory]

use the CACLS /? for more info
use the NET SHARE /? for more info
You can set permissions but I have mastered that skill yet. =)
net share cshare=c:\shared /GRANT:Everyone,FULL

Doesn't work on XP and I don't think it works on 2000 but should work on everything after that.
