Re: [K12OSN] symbolic link not visible when logging in using ftp

Quoting Krsnendu dasa <krsnendu orcon net nz>:

However when I login to ftp using my username and password, I can see all
the contents of my home directory but not "School Intranet".

What do I have to do so that I can access this file through ftp?

ftp daemons often run chroot, so if that is the case with yours, your symlink is
likely outside the chroot that the ftp daemon is running in. And hence, its
not accessible. Either place the folder inside the chroot, or modify your ftp
daemon config to change how it behaves.

Or consider a different way of providing home access beside ftp, such as a
web-based SMB interface.  I use the Gollem module of Horde to do this.  Gollem
is a 1.0beta but has worked well for me (http:/www.horde.org/gollem).
