browsing ntfs partitions via ftp


hello everyone.

i mounted 1 ntfs partition in my fedora4, then, with vsftpd i start my ftp server.

when i log in, i cant see my /mnt directory, it is invisible to my ftp client. i changed the '/mnt/windows' mount point to '/home/user1/windows' but still nothing, my ftp client can see every single directory except for the one with the ntfs partition mounted. I even changed the mount point to to /home/user1/windowsD and my client was able to see the emty folder of /home/user1/windows, but the /home/user1/widnowsD is now invisible.

what can i do to access the ntfs partitions via ftp?

thanx

Can you see the folder from the computer locally? Can you access files in it?

vsftpd may be set up NOT to traverse mountpoints.

Can you post the output of the 'mount' command? I see no specific related options in the vsftpd.conf manpage, however I do wonder if the user vsftpd runs as can read those directories.

/dev/shm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/hda1 on /mnt/windows type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,umask=000)

automount(pid2132) on /misc type autofs (rw,fd=4,pgrp=2132,minproto=2,maxproto=4)
automount(pid2167) on /net type autofs (rw,fd=4,pgrp=2167,minproto=2,maxproto=4)


then i run the command "mount --move /mnt/windows /home/user1/windows"
before i do that, i can access /home/user1/windows emty dir with no problem
but after i mount it, the folder does not appears any more in the ftp client, but if i localy browse
it i can see all the files of the partition mounted, i dont know what is going on here.

thanx

Hi,

just in order to help finding the solution, I am experiencing the same problem but without Windows.

I have a laptop only with 1 HD which has some partitions:

Code:
 
[root@hobbes vsftpd]# mount
/dev/hda3 on / type ext3 (rw)
/dev/proc  on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/sys  on /sys type sysfs (rw)
/dev/devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hda1  on /boot type ext3 (rw)
/dev/shm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/hda6 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda8 on /mnt/hd2 type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda7 on /s type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
/dev/hdc on /media/cdrecorder type udf (rw,nosuid,nodev,_netdev,user=bart)
When I log with a local user using "ftp localhost" and make "ls /" I get:

Code:
ftp> ls /
227 Entering Passive Mode (127,0,0,1,241,50)
150 Here comes the directory listing.

drwxr-xr-x   26 0        0            4096 Aug 10 13:30 var
226 Directory send OK.
Note that the directories for /s, /boot and /mnt/hd2, which are other partitions from the same /dev/hda, simply are not shown. And I am pretty sure I can access them locally with the same user I am logging in.

I searched the net and read the whole vsftpd.conf man page but couldn't find anything related to partitions, mountpoint or device restrictions.

Any one has a clue?

Regards,
Thiago
