Alternative to a folders security tab

If I right click a folder on a network share, I can no longer see the security tab to see which users are members on the access control list. This is via a Windows 7 PC connected to a share on a 2008 server. Is there any alternative tool or method to get this information if the security tab has (presumably??) been hidden by group policy as we some-times need this information for audit purposes?

If you log on to the computer/server that hosts the share can you see the security info for the share? would this be a viable option? or are you explicitly trying to retried security information of a share remotely?

Ideally wouldnt want to login to the server, just something quick and easy - or that can report out the information for all shares/directories/sub directories

Is that just share permissions, though, and not NTFS/directory permissions?

Once you are connected to the remote computer and can see all the shares you can double click a share and you will get this windows that allows you to see both share permissions and NTFS: context menu of remote share and storage management

Can any domain user run icacls against any server/share, or are there limitations on which users can list the ACL per server/share? Or perhaps which will report the output....

And is icacls reporting share permissions, or directory permissions, is there any command line to get share permissions if these are just directory permissions?

I would say that users need to have permissions to read permissions if that makes sense? with some lower level users that we need to have some level of access I think remember having to let them have the permissions to view to permissions! ... I hope you follow!
