I'd like to make a shared directory on a LAN so that people can drag and drop files there and they'll become visible to everyone. I'd originally thought that this would be simple but I'm clearly doing something really wrong.
One, I'd like people to not be able to access other folders higher up on the directory tree.
Two, I'd like people on different computers to be able to drag and drop items into this folder without adding passwords each time.
Is there a way to make a symlink that will go to a different host's computer?
