need help with group


if I have user name in the /etc/passwd
abc:x:200:500::/home/abc:/bin/bash
zxy:x:201:501::/home/abc:/bin/bash

in the /etc/group
in the group I have
user1:x:500:
user2:x:501:abc,xyz

does it mean that "abc" should be able to access any folder that allow user2 groups?

Yes, it means that abc is a member of the user2 group. Of course it's still possible for another member of user2 to block their directories from abc and other members of the group...

man 5 passwd
man group
man chmod
