Hello,
I have several ftp users, and i need that they can access a directory, which not belongs to users ftp-home. Symbolic link
does not work. Freebsd 3.2, ProFTPD 1.2.0pre7. Thanks in advance

ftp users are chroot'ed. which means they cannot access any files outside of their root directory. That's why your symbolic link doesn't work. So move the directory into the ftp tree.
