Linking a directory for ftp user
So, I have done this before, but after a fresh install of Slack 11, I can't for the life of me figure out what I am doing wrong this time.
I want a symbolic link in the /home/ftp directory to a /data/files directory mounted on a seperate drive, so that an anonymous ftp user can navigate to the 'files' subdirectory and download it's contents.
The link is as follows:
lrwxrwxrwx files -> /data/files
The permissions of the entire /data folder are:
On the server as the ftp user I can navigate the link. But ftp-ing in from another box, I am denied access to the folder. I tried all sorts of random permissions when all logic failed, to no avail.
Anyone see my error? Or have a better solution.
