#9235 closed defect (worksforme)

Symlinks out of chroot aren't followed

I'm having a FTP-Server wish chroots every user in their /User/xy directory. But because of you need to edit other files too sometimes, I created symlinks out of the jail. Cyberduck and Mountain Duck try to resolve the Orginal Path, and this is failing.

Things to reproduce:

  • Create a FTP-Server wish supports chroot (I'm using PureFTPd)
  • Enable chrooting
  • create a chroot wish points OUTSIDE the chroot.

Cyberduck will not show this Files, Mountain duck will fail with an error (see attachment) In Cyberduck I could fix this issue myself by commenting the part wish tries to look the origin Path out.

  • Milestone set to 4.8

I do not understand what your expected behaviour would be. A symbolic link target outside the chroot jail is clearly not accessible and the error message in Finder trying to resolve the link is expected. Can you elaborate, please?
