Depends. If the device is present when the system boots, yes. If it shows up later (like a USB drive) then you need to set up some /etc/devfs.rules instead.
But that doesn't get picked up until the next time devd is started. If I want to change the permissions right now, can I just go into /dev and use chmod or do I need to fool around with devfs(8)? Robert Huff
devfs.rules are applied when you execute /etc/rc.d/devfs restart, and that may apply to devfs.conf too (never tried it honestly). That said, I've never had problems using chmod for temporary changes on device nodes.
