    Service: vsftpd

    I want to share multiple folders on different drives/partitions via FTP. But I don't want to copy all of these files to /var/ftp/pub/.
    Is there a kind of "link" that could do this job?

    Which ftp server are you using and which OS ?

    You could use NFS for this.

    take a look toward the bottom of /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf

    You can setup user(s) account to direct logins to a directory, placing soft-links in that directory to other directories might work out.

    That's exactly the problem I met.
    The soft link doesn't work.
    When I try to cd to that soft link, error occurs:
    "access failed: 550 failed to change directory"

    The only way I found out is to mount the /dev/sdb1 to /var/ftp/pub/share. But I think there should be a better way.

    are the permissions to the soft link and the target directory setup so that a vsFTP user could access them?
