Hide files users do not have access to


I have a directory on my ftp server which is private. I have allowed only a certain group rights to it. The problem is when normal users log in to ftp they can see it, but when then enter it, it looks empty. Is there a way I can hide it all together from people without any rights to it?

using vsftp on fedora 8

Set the permissions to the parent directory of the one you do not want displayed to 770.

The parent directory is already 750.

Does the parent directory have the same owner and group as the child directory?

Bump

I have basically the same question -- if it's possible to make restricted files "unbrowseable", i.e. only show certain files in a directory to members of that directory's group.
