FileZilla Server - Directory Aliases

Description

I would like to have the ability to create aliases for directories. For example, the C:\FTPROOT\TEMP directory is displayed to the end user as "Upload" (as opposed to "TEMP") when they do a directory listing.

Create a shortcut for c:\FTPROOT\TEMP and call it Upload
and give the user access to it.

As far as I can tell, you can only give users access to directories, not individual files (such as 'temp.lnk').

A shortcut in the home directory doesn't work as an alias to a different directory.

this is exactly what i was looking for. this seems to be such a obvious and often used feature that i really wonder why this was not included. (I hope the server is still under development)
btw. the mentioned "work-arounds" did not work for me.

It never worked for me either. Maybe we should direct this
request to one of FileZilla's forums
(http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/forum/)...

Triage suggestion

The user could manually create NTFS symbolic links to act as aliases using the mklink command. Anyway there has been no movement on this ticket in 13 years.

I suggest closing this ticket.
