Hi, ok that's the hand-made way. I really don't want to change this by
hand for all folders we have on IOS ;-).

Ok, so I think I have to write a reblet to change the registry.r file.
Did anyone already wrote some registry.r parsing / access / using ...
BTW: What happens if some of my users change the registry.r file on
their machine by hand and try to publish it back to the IOS server? Is
this allowed? I think it is because users can add folders and this
change needs to be published back to server. But than they could change
the 'access block to gain folder-creation rights...

But users are used to use the desktop functionality of IOS for creating
folders. Best thing would be to have access to the default rights from
some configuration file. Or change the desktop source-code. But I don't
have access to the desktop source-code.

No problem, each step helps. Robert
