    * Problem with symlink

    Im trying to create a symlink in a users folder, but it doesnt work.

    im trying to make a link to /home/icartbk using:

    cd /home/mnahost
    ln -s /home/icartbk /icart

    but if i FTP in to the account and try and access icart it returns:

    COMMAND:> CWD icart
    550 icart: No such file or directory

    I know the directory exists, and there are files in it.

    Am I supposed to do somthing else?

    cd /home/mnahost;ln -s /home/icartbk icart

    Drop the / off the icart.

    Not all daemons will follow symlinks (due to security reasons or due to chroot()'ing).

    Which daemon are you running and is it chrooted()?
