Why cannot I log in with a user? I already gave the user RW or RO access right. (Why can I write into a share? I already gave the user RW access right.)

The answers to the above two questions are the same; the access right priority.

Deny > RW > RO > Empty (no setting).

Example 1:

“UserA” is a member of “UserGroup”.  If you give “UserA” RW or RO access right to “Public” share folder and at the same time you give “UserGroup” Deny to “Public”, per the access rule above, resulting access right for “UserA” is Deny


Example 2:

“UserB” is a member of “UserGroup”.  If you give “UserB” RO access right to “Qmultimedia” share folder and at the same time you give “UserGroup” RW access right to “Qmultimedia” share folder, per the access rule above, resulting access right for “UserB” is RW.

Example 3:

“UserC” is a member of “UserGroupA” and “UserGroupB”.  For share folder “Qdownload” you give “UserGroupA”RW, “UserGroupB” RO, and you do not configure “UserC” (Empty), the resulting access right for “UserC” is RW.


 

Note: All users are in group “everyone” by default, please check your “everyone” access right for conflicts.
