My company's server uses Linux Redhat Enterprise version. I notice other users' home directories have permission drwxrwxrwx. However, I cannot cd or ls other users' home directories. Why this happens?
More backgrounds: My company has N machines 1, 2, 3, .. , N. Suppose there are userA, userB, userC, userD 4 users. Each user can log on any machine to access his own /home/user[A|B|C|D] directory.(From this behavior, I guess the data in the home directories is stored on a shared drive and then mounted on each machine). In addition, each user can see other users' /home/userA, /home/userB, etc with permission drwxrwxrwx. However, each user cannot cd or ls other users' home directories. What is my company's system setup to achieve this?
