    On my Mac Book Pro, I am using smb/afp to mount a shared windows folder. On my Mac, it is created as a volume. It is showing the list of "ls" command on Mac as
    drwx------ 1 johnny admin 16384 Jan 21 11:48 test123
    Now I am trying the command "chmod 555", which is not modifying the ACL parameters of the shared folder mounted on Mac.

    I tried with mounting Linux disk also. But the same result.

    How to achieve changing ACL of remote volumes on Mac.

    Are you sure you mean ACL? That is completely different to standard Unix file permissions.

    Yes, I mean its ACL.
    infact I am looking at something like: inside the remote mounted volume, I want to change permissions of some file/folder.
    How can I achieve it?

    Well if it is a Windows server it does not support Mac OS X ACL's as far as I know, if it is a Mac OS X server then you would use the standard tools.

    This is the ACL extract from the chmod man page:
