Hi All,

Just having a few problems with vsftpd. i have created a new user (through webmin) and changed their home folder to where i want them to log in to when the connect via ftp. It has worked but they are able to navigate to other folders. I'm failrly sure it is a groups/permissions thing but I cant figure it out.

Anyone out there know their way around here better than myself??
