FTP server question

I am relatively new to Linux. Currently using RedHat 7.2

I have an FTP server question.

We(the company I worked for) has an ftp client program at locations that connects to our current ftp server at night and automatically uploads and downloads files. When the ftp client connects it sees a <TEST> directory. The <TEST> directory is actually an alias for another directory. Depending on what the user login name is determines what directory the <TEST> directory is actually pointing to.

For example:

LOGIN: HOMER would see <TEST> dir and <TEST> would be an alias for C:\TEST\01

LOGIN: HOMER2 would see <TEST> dir and <TEST> would be an alias for C:\TEST\02

Our current FTP server is WarFTP and we want to switch it to Linux. Is there an ftp server for Linux that can do the alias like WarFTP?

Thanks for the help,

The default FTP server for RedHat, ProFTPd can be tweaked to perform like that.

Thanks for the reply.

I went through the Docs for Proftpd but I dont see any configuration where I can alias a directory. Any ideas?
