Permissions Fix
Authored by: macgyver929 on Sep 24, '03 01:19:10PM

Occasionally ( and especially after security or OS updates ) my NAT goes down ( the process is running but? ). I messed around so much I'm not sure what actually fixed it most times, but I think it was resetting the permissions. So I've added this to the NAT script just after the first console message:

#fix permissions
chown root:wheel /Library/StartupItems/NAT/
chown root:wheel /Library/StartupItems/NAT/NAT
chmod 4754 /Library/StartupItems/NAT/NAT
chown root:admin /Library/StartupItems/NAT/StartupParameters.plist
chmod 644 /Library/StartupItems/NAT/StartupParameters.plist

It hasn't gone down since, so if you're having the same issue give this a try.

This may be an OS X 10.2 Server server thing as that's what I'm running.
