But its priviliged so i was wandering if can run the chmod command through the network connection and make it public and see whats in it

Well the command would / could be (there are several others)
Code
chmod 777 *




however to run this command, your going to require the privileges to change the file permissions, which you don't have, so you cant. Be a pretty useless security feature if you could do what your trying to do.

yeah, as a basic user you wont be able to chmod anything you do not own, and also as a basic user you are not able to chown files (change who owns them) unless you are an admin (root / super user).
The best thing you can do from there is just keep scrounging until you find something that is still public, but shouldnt be. Like at our high-school, richohealey found that the schools website was hosted internally and was able to mount shared drive, which was public read write, so come muck up day, there were a billion pop-ups mostly humorous for all to enjoy!

Just keep scrounging
