Using Public folder on iDisk

Hi,
I am looking for a easy way to create a public folder on my iDisk. I had created my folder in MobileMe. But the thing is that a different friend who has offered to get access to the public folder prompts for password. I does not want this in my case. How should I create a proper public folder on iDisk without any password. This is just for sharing purpose.

Yes that is right that you can add up a public folder to allow others to share your folder. For that you can do this. Mount the Public folder to the iDisk from another user. For that go to the Finder menu Go > iDisk > Target Folder of another user and type the member name (login) from this user. The Public folder of that name appears on your desktop. If this user has protected his Public folder by a password (ITS in MobileMe control panel in System Preferences), you will also know the password.

It happens when you get confused about the password protection. The password for the folder Public, not the password for the MobileMe account of that user. They are different. If you even decide to protect access to your audience with a password, omit the password for your MobileMe account, if not everyone can have access to all your MobileMe account.

It may be that the Public folder of that user is in play mode and you can download to your desktop that is in them but not add items in this folder Public or in write mode. In this case, you can also add elements to your hard disk to this folder Public. It's that user choose if the folder Public is in Play or Writing and reading in the iDisk from the MobileMe control panel in System Preferences.

There is one more of doing this. For that go to Public folder to the iDisk from another user via your browser. Now you can also access the Public folder of another user directly from your browser. Just know the http address this issue. This address is specified in the iDisk dashboard MobileMe for each account holder MobileMe. Ask your contacts to send you the address of the http folder Public their iDisk respectively in order to connect to their files Public in this way.

First you will have to set permissions, either in play mode or in read / write. In this case check the box Allow other users to modify files in your public folder, with or without password. In Mac, you could also access the folder Public a person X using a third solution. This was possible only that person X had produced a website for sharing files i.e. the contents of the folder Public called FileSharing.
