I think there may have also been a second command, something about tty
or re-mapping it?|

The mode denotes the access permissions that apply to the file. "6" is the octal equivalent of 110 binary, which, when applied against the pattern "rwx", means "r" (read) and "w" (write) are enabled (set to one) and "x" (executable) is disabled (set to 0). The first octal digit is for the file's owner's permissions, the second for members of the file's group, and the third for others. A permission string of 666 gives read and write permission to everyone. On a multi-user system, you typically wouldn't do that, but on a single-user desktop its a pretty safe bet that no one will be trying to use the USB ports concurrently.
