How does Linux handle file sharing? Does it have separate sharing and file system level permissions, or is it all bundled into one simple and secure methodology? The reason I like just setting Share to Everyone and then managing on an NTFS level is because it becomes such a pain in the ass to make sure that permission levels are equivalent across the board. Obviously, share level restrictions would add another layer of security, but damn... things get hairy.
Depends on the daemon. rsync, smb, ssh, xfs, etc.
