By default, FairCom DB file permissions are inherited from world to group to owner. For example, if the SECURITY() function is called with a mode of SEC_FILEMASK and a permission mask of WPF_READ, GPF_READ and OPF_READ permissions are turned on. However, note that if GPF_NONE is specified, the permissions are not passed on to the group (and to the owner).

Note: Changing this option does not affect inheritance of permissions on files whose permissions have already been set. It only affects the inheritance of permissions when they are set at file create time or by calling the SECURITY() function with a mode of SEC_FILEMASK.

Default: YES
