Check your configuration. You are describing a drop box. Check "dirlist_enable" and "download_enable" in vsftpd.conf.

Thnx bro.....shall look at it. but the problem solved with altering the directories and files permissions... the visibilty has
been restored. But do actually file permissions block visibilty in the ftp site?
and when ever i reboot the server..i have to reconfigure all the permissions and settings... does it work that way?
