As I tried to edit /private/etc/nat/autoportmap.plist, I accidentally modified permissions on the nat folder and asked Lion to apply it to enclosing items (I was giving myself write permission). As a result, I might have changed permissions for the enclosing files. Could anyone please confirm what are the permission sets by default for the three files present in this folder?


I'm using Lion Server.

I don't have that. What setting is responsible for creating that folder? – Daniel Beck Dec 12 '11 at 6:22
Sorry, I forgot to specify I've got Lion server. I'm quite sure this is a server feature. – gaudi_br Dec 12 '11 at 7:23
