[ee122] Question regarding permissions and Request-URI

Hello. Quick question.

Say, you have a request:

GET /foo/bar/dizzle/index.html

But the 'bar' directory's permissions forbid the "other" group from
reading it. I'm assuming that this would be a 'file not found'
situation, because I'd think to using the command line to find a file.
If this command can't even descend into the directory, we can't really
know the file even exists.. Is this thinking correct? Or is it a 403
error?

Thanks.

Anthony
