I use mount_null and have no problem with it. You need create dir in each user home and use mount_null for mount your chrooted dir
with created directories as mount points .
So you need add many lines in your /etc/fstab file .
I understand. Thanks for your reply.
I think that words in manual about beta concern writing in directory that uses mount_null. I don't use write and it seems that you don't
need write too. So use this fs type ( set in fstab "ro" option for this mount point).
And read man for mount_null.
This seems reasonable. Can anyone else comment on their experience using mount_null read only?

I have a few users that I wish to allow FTP access on my 4.9-RELEASE-p4 system. I've setup their accounts and added them to /etc/ftpchroot to lock them into their login directories. They are in the standard /home/user dirs.
However, I want all of them to have access to another directory (/ftp/share) that is setup read-only. I tried adding a symlink to /ftp/share but I've found this doesn't work when the user is chrooted. I've Googled on this issue. A FAQ for PureFTPd confirms this and suggests mount_null. But the man page for mount_null says that the code is beta and may wipe out a file system.
What is the best way to achieve my objective? If mount_null is it, how do I use it? Do I include it in some sort of login script? I've set these users shells to nologin. How would that work?
