    Hey guys

    Just wondering if anyone could help me with the vt100 app as it doesnt seem to be working for me.
    Whenever i try to access a file or folder through the terminal is says Permission denied:
    For example,

    # /var/root
    zsh: permission denied: /var/root


    Anyone tell me why this is or how i could fix it?

    Thanks

    Now I know my Unix is rusty, but doesn't that mean commandwise that you're trying to RUN root in the /var folder? If you're trying to change to the /var/root directory, you need to use the command "cd /var/root"

    Yup, the man says it all. For a quick video on terminal commands, take a look at my youtube page in my sig.
