After setting up a ftp server I found that I must share the directories from which I allow selected people to ftp files to their own computer.
But Mandrake10.0 requires that the shared directories are inside
my home directory.
However it should be possible to achieve this with a directory not
in my home directory.
So I made a symlink from the download directory to a directory with the same name in my home directory, which I made shared.
However this seems a rather blunt method to me, and I would like to know if I can solve this sharing problem in a better and more elegant way, i.c. directly.
And also, is there a commandline instruction for this?
