FileZilla has a problem to expand paths of NFS-mounted
computers. Please see the following mail for details:

Ok when I use the Command Prompt to download the file
there is no problem ! However, using my FTP
client "FileZilla" it is as I said in my previous email... It is
not working with files located in nmrpc0. When I click on
nmrpc0 (path being /usr/people/polymer/nmrdata/) my
FTP client put me under the patch "/polymer/nmr/" !
The path should have been /nmrpc0/data/polymer/nmr
so the problem is probably that your ftp-program does
not properly expand the
/usr/people/polymer/nmrdata/ symbolic link to that path.
In short, I think it is a bug.
Maybe FileZilla works if you connect
to /nmrpc0/data/polymer/nmr instead?
That path should not have to be expanded the same
way since the backup
computer is NFS-mounted on /nmrpc0/data.
Or use another ftp-program.
This problem was found in other FTP clients like
smartFTP. Two FTP clients which work without
problems: FTP-voyager and CoreFTP
