ProFTPd + symlink


Hello, I am trying to set-up an ftp server and give the users access to drives that are not in their /home/dir. What I have done so far is I have given them their home dir and put a symlink into their home which points to the other drive and I have chrooted them to their home. This creates a whole different problem. When they login and try to access the link it isn’t there because the path is no longer there. I have tried to mount –bind to the old directory, but am not having much luck if anyone knows how to accomplish this please respond.

Command:

Mount –bind /mnt/hde1/ftp /mnt/hdg1/ftp/Site#2

This is the command that I used.

What's the point of having a chroot jail when you want them to access directories outside their home?

Forget the chroot and just work with permissions
