    Angry Using HAL fdi policy to restrict access to a mounted USB


    Hi,

    I have a requirement of mounting an external usb with NTFS filesystem and allowing restricting its access only to the console user(even restricting access to a single group is fine). I am able to mount the usb by using the attached fdi policy. However, I want the access to be restricted to a single user or a group. Is there anything that I'm missing here. I did search on the internet, but couldn't find anything in this regard. Plz help!!!




    Thanks,
    Sumanth

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    For this sort of thing, I create a mount point in my home directory, blocking access to anyone but myself or root, then mount it there.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
