How to allow chrooted ftp user (real user) on Solaris 10  to cd to sub-directories

I have a chrooted ftp user with sub-directories below the chrooted directory. I would like to be able to start an FTP session, cd to to one of the subdirectories and then get or put a file, also to issue ls to see what is inthe directory.

I've added the user to guestuser and to restricted-uid in /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess and have specified the home directory to chroot to in /etc/passwd.

Currently I am able to FTP in to the chrooted hme directory but can not see or move to the sub-directories.

Have you set up the directory as a chrooted directory structure, with a /etc and /lib, and such? One thing to do, is connect as the guest user, then once you try something that doesn't work that you think should work, then (As root) run the truss command like this: "truss -f -p `pgrep in.ftpd`" and while the truss is running, issue the same command again. This output from truss should show you why the command is failing.

Well the underlying problem was a typo in a path (arent they always) but I'd not have spotted it without the output from truss.
Thanks for your help
