Re: Cygwin Cron not running

Thanks for the info, however, I'm a bit confused. In cronbug it states
that the permissions are:

-rwxrwx--- 1 lumcon mkgroup-l-d 244 May 30 14:45 /var/cron/tabs/lumcon

However, when I run a ls -al I get:

-rw-r--r-- 1 lumcon mkgroup-l-d 244 May 30 14:45 /var/cron/tabs/lumcon

How/why are they different? And how can I change the permissions of this
file to get them correct? I'm not familiar with how chmod works in cygwin,
because using the 3 numbers as in unix does not work.

Define "does not work".

Sounds to me like you could have some look-alike versions of your tools
around.  What does 'which ls' say?  What does 'which chmod' say?  Perhaps
you could show us this followed by calling 'chmod'?
