While that works, I want to disable specific users, the Access tab in Server Admin is only a whitelist.

comment Unintended rm-rf command on server
Ouch. My advice would be to use ls first to see what would be deleted with the appropriate wildcard(s). When you're satisfied they are the files to be deleted, replace ls with your most evil rm -rf command.

comment I can not cd “LaunchAgents” on macbook
Good idea. I usually append a / if I want to be sure of copying to a directory - i.e. copy file dir/ then if dir doesn't exist, it wont copy file to a file called called dir

No no. Ports 1-1023 are privileged ports.

-1 for the wrong answer. Try 65,535. But good point about the argument for/against non-standard ports.

comment OSX Server permissions weirdness
What do you mean by "accesses a folder"? Do the permissions change just by virtue of looking at it in the Finder? Do you get problems when users create folders?
