HI ! :) this is my first post from my long-awaited iMac

Since I am obsessive about operating systems I hope you have done the right thing haha.

Here my 1st question for macosx Lion.

I Change the permissions of the host to edit and block certain sites as is shown here

http://youtu.be/91vJbwPeZWM

Everything went well but then wanted to leave the permissions on the folder "etc" and the file "host" as it came to me installed.


In the folder "etc" I can leave with the same permissions as the Lion came installed

System:read and write
Wheel: only write
Everyone : only write


instead if the file "host" like the screen capture (in spanish) I could not leave it as it came to me installed.





"My name (I)" read and write (previously SYSTEM appeared), I do not know how to change it? will not let me remove "my name (I)" and add SYSTEM

Wheel disappeared , and now appears Staff

Everyone, only read and write

Here I show as the Lion came installed (in spanish)



System : read and write
wheel : Only Read
Everyone: Only Read

As a precaution I had copied the ". host" original file to the desktop but is = changed the permissions without touching anything ?


Change or copy whenever a file is modified in this way? and how I can re-let the permissions as before?

Thanks and sorry my English :D

I'd not touch the permissions of any OS delivered file, or directory. Why not instead edit the host file so that it does not go to the sites you want to block, or even a better idea is to use the parental controls and use that for access rights on web sites.
