Hi all and thanks to anyone who can help.

I am running Cent OS 2.6.32-431.3.1.e16.x86_64

Hosting an FTP using vsftpd

I want to create the following:



training-admin has full RW rights
training has R only

training-admin has full RW rights
training should not see the folder

training admin has full RW rights
training should not see the folder

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Use pure-ftp instead of vsftpd because it does has option for jailing the directory and permissions.

Creating Users:
#useradd training-admin
#passwd training-admin
#useradd training
#passwd training

Creating Folders:
#mkdir Training
#mkdir Internal
#mkdir Private

Permission to the Folders
#setfacl -m u:training-admin:rwx Training
#setfacl -m u:training:r-- Training
#setfacl -m u:training-admin:rwx Internal
#setfacl -m u:training:r-- Internal
#setfacl -m u:training-admin:rwx Private

Chmode 750 Private (So that the training use will not be able to read the private directory.)
You cant hide a folder for specific user i guess..
