       nwgrant - Add Trustee Rights to a directory

       nwgrant [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] [ -o object name
       ] [ -t type ] [ -r rights ] file/directory

       nwgrant adds the specified bindery object with the corresponding  trustee  rights  to  the

       nwgrant	looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user name and possibly
       a password. See nwclient(5) for more information. Please note that the access  permissions
       of $HOME/.nwclient MUST be 600 for security reasons.

	  -h is used to print out a short help text.

       -S server
	  server is the name of the server you want to use.

       -U user
	  user is the user name to use for login.

       -P password
	  password is the password to use for login. If neither -n nor -P are given, and the user
	  has no open connection to the server, nwgrant prompts for a password.

	  -n should be given if no password is required for the login.

	  By default, passwords are converted to uppercase before they are sent  to  the  server,
	  because most servers require this. You can turn off this conversion by -C.

       -o object name
	  The name of the object to be added as trustee.

       -t object type
	  The  type of the object.  Object type must be specified as a decimal value. Common val-
	  ues are 1 for user objects, 2 for group objects and 3 for print  queues.  Other  values
	  are  allowed,  but are usually used for specialized applications. If you do not specify
	  object type, object name is taken as NDS name.

       -r rights
	  You must tell nwgrant which rights it should grant to  the  bindery  object.	 The  new
	  rights  for the object is specified by rights, which can be either a hexadecimal number
	  representing the sum of all the individual rights to be granted or a string  containing
	  characters  representing  each  right.  If rights are represented in string format then
	  the string must be bounded with square brackets.  Characters within the brackets may be
	  in  any  order  and in either case.  Spaces are allowed between the brackets - in which
	  case the entire string should be quoted.  Hexadecimal  and  character  values  for  the
	  rights are shown in this table:

	      00 = no access
	      01 = read access	      = R
	      02 = write access       = W
	      08 = create access      = C
	      10 = delete access      = E
	      20 = ownership access   = A
	      40 = search access      = F
	      80 = modify access      = M
	     100 = supervisory access = S

	  for a possible total of "1fb" or "[SRWCEMFA]" for all rights.

	  You  must  specify  the directory to which to add the object as trustee. This has to be
	  done in fully qualified NetWare notation.


	  nwgrant -S NWSERVER -o linus -t 1 -r fb 'data:home\linus'

	  With this example, user linus is given all rights except supervisory to his home direc-
	  tory	 on   the   data   volume.  This  example  assumes  the  existence  of	the  file

	  nwgrant -o linus -t 1 -r fb /home/linus/ncpfs/data/home/linus

	  With this example, user linus is given all rights except supervisory to his home direc-
	  tory	on  the  data  volume.	This  example assumes that NWSERVER is already mounted on
	  /home/linus/ncpfs mountpoint.

       nwgrant was written by Volker Lendecke with the corresponding NetWare utility in mind. See
       the Changes file of ncpfs for other contributors.
