Server : Xserve running 10.6.8

Clients : Mixed bag, 10.6.8 / 10.7.4


I need my network only users to be able to access some fonts. Here is my set up so far


I enabled guest access for AFP

I have created a folder on the server called "Library"

I created a share point from the "Library" folder

I set the permissions to rw for everyone

I set the sharepoint to appear in Network/Library

I enabled guest access for the sharepoint itself

I created a folder inside "Library" called "Fonts"

I placed all my fonts inside that folder


The problem

When I log on as a network user, I see Network/Library/Fonts/<fonts are in there>

When I open Fontbook while logged in as that network user, under the Network location, no fonts are listed.


What else could I be doing wrong here? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Xserve, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 802.1x wireless Aruba
