Hi there

Hi created on my ftp server user

useradd -m -s /sbin/nologin user1
then
I go to hi home folder to give him access to another user
cd /home/user1
then
ln -s  /home/user2    to give access user1 to home folder of user2

then I go to /etc/group

I edit user2

user2:x:572:user1

Ok now I open the ftp site log has user1and I should be able to see and have access to directory home folder of user2 but I still get an access denied

I go to cd /home/user2

chmod 750 on user2 home directory but still I get an access denied ???

Does anyone know how to log on on ftp site with one user and have access to another user directory ?

thanks all

Ah, sorry. i'm no help.

i use ubuntu.  I'm sure there is a redhat IRC channel for support.  thats your best option.


So get an irc client. connect to irc.freenode.net then join room #redhat

you might need to find the correct channel on the web, but that will be amazing support.

Is selinux enabled? If it is, then you will have to run chcon

IRC Channel: #RedHat on freenode.net is still your best option.

Ok I kinda found a way to do it

I edit the vsftpd.conf and set chroot_local_user=NO

I see all the folders but have access to only the one I gave access into folder /etc/group

thanks anyway
