What I'm really trying to do is have a server be able to tell the
that it (the server) has writeable access to a directory so that the
client can use that directory as a "drop folder". The server needs to
be able to a) remove items from the drop folder after they're
and b) write a log file to that directory. None of this actually
happens until the user actually drops something in the folder. I want
to preflight all of this when the drop folder is established, rather
than having to wait until the first time it is used.
I don't have any great advice for you, as I'm not very knowledgeable
about this part of the filesystem API. However, I would suggest that
you repost your question about whether it's possible to use access()
in the way you want to the darwin-dev mailing list; you're much more
likely to find someone knowledgeable about it on that list.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
