I managed to attached a shared folder with the vmware, but I need an another location to mount (not vmhgfs). I tried to create a simlink to the desired location, but it has got a root permission always (can not change). Please help. thx, István
A symlink has always the permissions
rwxrwxrwx, it gets its effective permission when the link is followed. You can see the effective permission and the target of the link with
ls -ldL <symlink>.
