Re: Symbolic links and FTP
Can anyone tell me how to properly create
a link from the anonymous ftp/pub directory
to another directory located on the same or
on a different file system.
You can't create symbolic links out of the anonftp directory, at least
not working ones. This is because the daemon runs "chroot"ed to
/home/ftp. See chroot(2,8) for details.
You can, however, create hard links to files on the same filesystem
(but not on other filesystems). Use ln(1) or cp -l to do this.
