Ok well here is what shows when I show the permissions for the shared directory. 

drwxrwxrwx 1 root users 0 Aug 27 10:01 /mnt/M

Is that not going to work?

Sorry, didn't mean to gloss over the details.

/etc/login.defs defines some parameters for users, including the
default permissions of files they create. You probably need a umask of
007 to have newly created files be group read/writable and directories
be group read/write/executable.


An "ls -ld /path/to/shared/dir" should show the permissions for the
shared directory. I think you'll want something like:


Doing a g+s on a directory will cause files created in that directory
to inherit the group ownership of the directory, which is generally
desired in a "group share" scenario.
