thanks for the reply,

Luis Ontanon said the following:

$ wireshark

(wireshark:550): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
this is a single user macbook on a home wireless to DSL system.
what does
$ id
yield in your case.

for me it does like this:
[id-est:~/src/ws/trunk] lego% id
uid=501(lego) gid=501(lego) groups=501(lego), 81(appserveradm),
79(appserverusr), 80(admin)

You can choose any of the groups that returns to chgrp to it.

This information is top security. When you have read it, destroy yourself.
