Unhappy vsftpd - How to share data lying on another partition (ext3 or Fat 32)


Os - Fedora core 8
Setup - 30 clients and a server (not connected to internet)

I want to share some data by using ftp.

But my data is lying on other partition.

I tried to mount the partition under /var/ftp/pub/<foldername> but ftp clients are not displaying this folder. Only folder created directly under "pub" are displayed.

How can I ?

Does the mount point directory have read/examine permission before the mount?
Do the files in the file system have read permission, and directories have read/examine permission for the ftp user ?

By the way, you mount *file systems* not partitions.
