Hello to everybody,
I have a (newbie ?) question !
I'm working on a HP-UX 11.0 sytem and trying to use the symbolic link
feature ("ln -s")
Here is the point :
For testing purpose, I create a directory in the current directory, for
example "toto" : mkdir toto
In the same directory, I create a link to this directory : ln -s toto aaa.
Every thing works fine and I can destroy the link with "rm aaa" which, of
course, does not
destroy the directory "toto".
But, I have serious problems when I made a link to another directory in the
same file sytem :
"ln -s /home/portfolio_1/pub RapCirc"
"lrwxrwxrwx 1 transfer best 21 Sep 6 13:02 RapCirc ->
The link works fine but :
1) I start an ftp session in Internet Explorer with a "normal" user :
I cannot see the link in the window but can open it directly
I start an ftp session in Internet Explorer with root :
Why can I not see the link with a normal user ?
2) If I try to destroy the link (rm RapCirc), it refuses with the
message : "rm: RapCirc/ directory" !
If I unlink the link (unlink RapCirc/), It destroys everything
including the link directory (/home/portfolio_1/pub/)
I don't know how to remove the link without touching the target
It is perhaps some really basic questions but I really don't understand.
I have read the man pages and it does not help.
Please help me !
As I'm french, I apologize for my poor english !
