Iam having a samba share where all the lan users access for their work now we have started outsourcing the work to the home users (internet users) by creating one common user account and giving this account details to the internet users they login and take the work , untill now sysadmin use to copy the files to and from to the ftp account, now i am planning to create the softlink of the share to the user account where the internet users can direcly access the work, this will save time and man power for copy and paste.
#ln -s /data/project1/10182010/ /home/outsource/
after executing the above command softlink 10182010 got created under the home directory of "outsource" user account when the user access it from the internet using the ftp client they are not able to browse the softlink directory. Please suggest me should i give the permissions to the softlink directory like chmod -R 2755 or should i set the permissions to the orginal directory. please help me, thanks in advance.
Iam confused whether to give or should give the permissions to the softlink director or to the orginal share, if should give the permissions to the softlink then please tell me what permissions should i give. Please help.
