Newly created files default group and write permissions

Whenever I create a new file the group name is "dnn" and the file permissions are "-rw-r--r--".

How do I get it so when I create files (with vi or other programs) that the default group is "sss" and the permissions are 770?

(I am running HP-UNIX)

You have to change your default group, in HPUX, is newgrp <new group>.
Thne you neeed to alter the umask setting:
newgrp sss
umask 007

You need to be set up by the sysadmin to be able to switch groups.
