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.
