The Regular User

A Regular User is the person who works on the software, manages files and does not need to know the working of the network.

Each user is assigned a given area on the LAN server. This area, called the user area, could be a directory or a subdirectory, or a group of subdirectories under which the user can manage files. The user can ensure that no other user can access this area without permission. In turn, this user too cannot access other users' areas unless given permission.

Thus, a regular user of a LAN has a personalized set of rights and restrictions.

However, there are hierarchies within users themselves. In an organization, for example, a manager would be given more rights than a junior executive.
