    Can't run at as user

    I am on FreeBSD 5.4. When I try to use 'at' to schedule a job, I can't do it as user, only root (even if user is in wheel group):

    ray@sloth:~$ at 2:00
    at: you do not have permission to use this program
    I'm really not sure what causes this, I can't find anything about it in the man pages, permissions for everything I believe is fine. Hopefully someone will be able to tell me how to set up at to be used as a user and not only root.

    In /etc/at.allow and /etc/at.deny you specify which users you want to allow/deny access to the "at" service.
