Rights management in Windows: Security expert roundup

David Nielson, Associate Site Editor

For SearchWindowsSecurity.com, 2008 begins where 2007 left off...with questions regarding Windows rights management and setting permissions in Windows networks. We kick off the 2008 "Ask the security expert" podcast series with three questions for Windows networking security expert Brad Dinerman. Brad offers his thoughts on setting permissions in Windows folders, user rights in Group Policy and managing proxy server settings in Group Policy.

Click play to listen to this podcast, "Solving rights management in Windows."

0:50: Is it possible to set permissions on a folder so that users can write files to that folder but not overwrite any permissions?

1:40: Why do I receive the error message, "Failed to open Group Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights?"

2:53: How can we use Group Policy to manage proxy server settings for certain desktops (and not laptops) within a particular subnet -- for each subnet per computer and not per-user?
