I'm assuming these people are using Windows XP? If so, check this blog post: http://chrishearn.wordpress.com/2010/04/07/os-x-server-smb-problems/
Specifically, this part:

Thanks for the reply.
Its a good link but unfortunately only related to SMB share, I am only sharing and connecting via AFP. This problem is actually not windows related at all. Clients are connecting to the AFP share via Mac's running 10.6.4.All, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Ah I see. Try removing the deny ACL and restrict the allow ACL to just the people you want. I never use deny ACL's... in my opinion they are more trouble than they're worth. From what I can tell, would only want to use them if you have an allow ACL inherited that you want to circumvent for a specific directory or file.Intel Xeon Xserve, Mac OS X (10.4.11), G4 Xserve
Agreed. Deny ACLs (on any platform) as exceptions to allow rules usually are best left avoided if they can be. Much easier to evaluate "this is what is allowed" then "this is what is allowed, except in this instance, or that one, or this other one".MBP MB604LL/A 17" 2.66Ghz/4.0GiB/320GB; MB MB061LL/B 2.0Ghz/4.0GiB/500GB, Mac OS X (10.6.4), TV; iPod Classic 80GB; iPod Touch 2G 8GB; iPad3G 32GB
Currently Being ModeratedAug 25, 2010 8:55 PM (in response to MuddyBulldog)Hey Guys, Thanks heaps for your input.
I guess I am going about this the wrong way, I will have a think about the best way to complete this task.
Does any one have any suggestions as to the best way to do this?
I wish to create a share with several folders inside that I want to be hidden unless the user is in a group with rights to read the folder?
I have been successful in doing this using POSIX permissions however the folders are not hidden, just displayed with the no access symbol.

Currently Being ModeratedAug 27, 2010 10:49 AM (in response to Darren_W)I've always gone with the philosophy that if you have two folders in one share that need different permissions what you actually need is two shares.
as opposed to:
where all 3 folders are accessed via 'afp://server/share',
users that don't have access to a particular share won't see it should they open
