    This might be a noob question but I have strange problem with my os x server..
    I enabled file sharing but I haven't made any shared point except the public folder. After then I tried to connect to the server (Finder->Go->Connect to server) via the other laptop, and it was successful but I can also access the home folder of the server admin.. so I found that I can even delete files remotely even though I didn't share the home folder....
    I realised that the server admin's user name and the laptop's local user name are the same, but I'm not sure if this causes the problem....:confused:

    If you connected to the server using an account name that has read/write privileges to that folder, you will be able to delete items in that folder. This isn't a problem; it's expected behavior.
