Well I am stuck with this problem can seems to get through it, so If anyone help me out will be great.
The senario is that I wanted to create an ftp server with the ftp user home directory pointing to a samba shared folde, so if anything is uploaded or downloaded should be stored on the samba shared folder. (due to more hd space).
So far I have got the ftp server up and running with the user logging in and directory being showed is also the shared directory, so far what I wanted is achived simple ABC, BUT the real problem is I can not write in the designated directory.
The samba share is properly mounted with correct permission for the samba user.
Using vsftp with no ch root and writing enabled.
When I take the listing of the folder /mnt/ it got permision of 755 but when I log on the samba server and see the permision of the shared folder it shows permission of 777.
Now I cant get through it what do I have to do to get the permision straight have also tried to change the file permision on the samba server.
