in reply to Viewing network shares

I've looked into viewing the permissions (for users and groups) on the shares somewhat, and it seems more daunting than I first believed.

The {'permissions'} hash key in Win32::NetResource::NetShareGetInfo is merely read, write, change, delete and so on. MSDN mentions the SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR in the SHARE_INFO_502 structure, but that's not available in W::NR::NetShareGetInfo.

One might work with Win32::FileSecurity, but it says in my version under Known issues/bugs:

  1. May not work on remote drives.

    Things are looking promising, I did some experimenting.

    Win32::FileSecurity::Get("\\\\computer\\share", \%sph); gives you a hash with the keys being users and/or groups and the values a bitmask. You can do the Get on a file, a directory or a share. For example, it could give the key DOMAIN\GROUP with the value 2032127, the bitmask being the permissions listed in CONSTANTS in the documentation for Win32::FileSecurity (DELETE, READ, FULL etc). Maybe it will only be a matter of using EnumerateRights and MakeMask.

    The testing done in ActivePerl 5.8.0 Build 805, Win32::FileSecurity version 1.03 ALPHA 97-12-14.
