AFP for macs and CIFS for windows.

is that what you mean?

freenas user file and dir permissions

The 'file mask' and 'directory mask' are what you want to look for here.
0660 should be a good file mask.
2770 might work for directory mask.
# 10  
i gave that a shot and will reboot shortly but we are a heavy mac environment and would need AFP to work before CIFS.
# 11  
What options do you have for AFP? Anything equivalent?
# 12  
AFP has nothing. Just allow you set the max. connections which is set to 50.
# 13  
Maybe that needs to be handled on the client side, then.

I presume they're just dragging files and such, not running things from console, so umask isn't so easily accessible/alterable. osx still has a way to set that for individual applications though:

Am I just being extremely dense, or is part of this statement (from the link you posted) blatantly untrue:

Quote:
For example, the default umask of 022 results in permissions of 755 on new files or folders: the owner has full access, while the group and others can read and execute, but not write to the file.
