About Access Control Lists
Xinet software uses Access Control Lists (ACLs) to control who has access to AFP volumes (High-Res, FPO and/or WEB Access) and to items in Xinet itself. If you establish custom ACLs, afterwards, you’ll need to go back to other places in the GUI to apply them:
Access as nativeadmin (a special case of Xinet end-user access) is discussed in Setting nativeadmin Access Control
The Access Control Admin dialog discussed in this chapter allows you to create custom ACLs. You may also use it to edit and delete existing ACLs. The ACLs you set up using this nativeadmin page may be applied in either of the instances mentioned above.

Which users can run the xinet ADMINISTRATION view
There are many reasons why you might want to make use of ACLs. For example, you may want people who are doing photo retouching only to have access to the high-resolution version of a volume. Likewise, you might want people who are doing lay-out work only to have access to the FPO views of a volume. In this way, you can help avoid confusion about which version of an image people use. You might also want to restrict printing to specific queues by setting up ACLs for particular hot folders.
