Symlinks in anonymous FTP don't work, since anonymous ftp sessions are chrooted in the home directory of the `ftp' user. You should probably move the files in ~ftp/stuff and then symlink to ~ftp/stuff from other parts of your tree. - Giorgos To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
