That's not possible. Every program in the system has to be applied the
limits, imposed on it, they can not read that file. Ok, I'll try.

nimrodel:/etc/security # l

It works! Now atd runs. Weird... it worked in 9.3. I have just checked my
backup of 9.3, and it certainly was -rw-------

I got lost. I always use permissions verbose, in letters, not numbers.
Less human translation and error ;-)


Ah, I understand your question now. Why did I have it as 600? I don't
remember. I don't know if I did it myself, or if it was that way
originally. I know edited that file; perhaps the editor changed the
permissions. In any case, it worked in 9.3.
