How do I create a shared folder for multiple users?


I am trying to create a shared folder for multiple users. Is there a way I can restrict other users from in seeing my files with the shared folder. Basically if I post a file from my login to the shared folder others shouldn't be able to see it and vice versa.

I tried nx5000 user's suggestion but then everyone can see all files posted in the shared folder.

A shared dir means what it says; anyone who can get into it can see all files therein.
You can use the Sticky Bit to stop others deleting your files (root excepted of course).

I am using vsftpd application on my servers. I have a user defined home folder in the server to which I upload all my logs. A software called Sterling B2B then picks up the files from there and create reports using those logs. Now that the logs are going to be uploaded by multiple users I would continue to create more user accounts and each of them would upload their logs. However the Sterling can only focus on one path. To resolve this I created a dynamic link within a folder which is now set as home directory for every user. The dynamic link is now pointing to a shared folder and sterling is supposed to pick up the files from there shared folder to execute.

Current status :
I can use SFTP to connect to server using filezilla and then rest of the plan works just fine . But this doesn't work while I use FTPES My client require SSL security and he want ftpes to be used to login. When I am logged in using ftpes I can login using filezilla and the symbolic links are listed correctly but i cannot open them due to following error message.


Below are the logs from filezilla. INBOUND is the symbolic link in below filezilla log which I am using to upload my worklog.

Does your client realize SFTP is at least as secure as FTP+SSL; they both rely on the same underlying libraries
Filezilla can handle sftp.
There's even scp with ssh-keys, which enables automation if required.

It almost looks like your link may have a bad name: \INBOUND... I see that:

"Status: Starting download of /INBOUND" is valid... but that would imply that \INBOUND is not, which leads me to think that perhaps the directory spec is wrong.
