permission denied when opening directory


I'm trying to get Unreal IRCd to work, I had to untar it as root and then I ran Config as root and then make as root. I can get into /home/andrew/Unreal but when I try to get into Unreal/src it says permission denied. What are the commands to fix this? I've tried umask 666 src, chmod 666 src, and chown andrew src, but none of those help. What should I do?

Try setting the execute bit on the directory, and see if that helps. Something like 750 or 755 should do the trick.
