Thankyou Anders. By configuring FTP so as to allowing access outside of
/srv/ftp, I assume you mean to NOT chroot validated users. Can this be
done without affecting anonymous users which go to my repositories mirrors?
Right now, authenticated users go to /srv/ftp and anonymous users go to

In the meantime, I'll give your #2 suggestion a try and see if that will
also work. It does allow less flexibility (read ease of maintenance) in
that I have to remember to mount additional links and not use symlinks in

Seconding Anders suggestion of using the bind mount option instead of a
symlink and configuring the FTP daemon to have access outside of /srv/ftp. You
can add the bind mount to the fstab in order to make it mount automatically at
boot time, or make use of autofs.
