I am using vsftpd as ftp server on rhel 5. I published a folder using ftp and try to access that folder using ftp client FileZilla. The problem is that filezilla shows physical path of ftp folder. This can be a security concern . Please suggest me any workaround

Thanks

Try to add chroot_local_user=YES instead of chroot_list_enable=YES in your configuration file

If you chroot the users connected using FTP, they will be able only to see their home (chrooted) folder.
