    I have created a symbolic link in a users folder that points to another folder I want him to have access to.

    When I login via FTP and attempt to open this folder I get the following

    Command: CWD FolderName
    Response: 550 FolderName: No such file or directory
    Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
    In SSH (as root) the Link works as it should. I did notice the symbolic link's permissions were root root. I attempted to change this to Username Group but it will not change no matter what I do. I assume it doesnt change because it is not supposed to change but I am stumped on how to resolve this so this user can login and continue his work.

    I have attempted this in a few different clients, results as follows.

    FileZilla - Shows Folder but gives above error
    Webmin - Shows folder but will not open it.
    msdos-ftp - Does not show the Folder at all.
    Putty - Everything works perfectly!

    Please try to login as root, go to the users hoemdir and then su to the username of the FTP user. Is the symlink still working under this user? Have a look at your ftp daemon configuration file, are there any settings that deny to follow symlinks?
