Immagino volessi dire "... link simbolici solo agli utenti anonimi...".

Ho trovato una risposta su google, che ho messo in coda.
A quanto pare proftpd funziona in ambiente chroot, quindi non può
accedere all'esterno. Però, se con gli utenti autenticati funziona,
questa teoria va a farsi friggere...

For chroot anonymous ftp you cannot symlink outside of the ftp dir since
those paths will not exist in the chroot environment.  But you can have
hard links to files (which do not work for directories).  You can mount
partition within the ftp tree (I have done that with cdrom), but I don't
think your user's would want their whole home dir accessible to everyone
by anonymous ftp.

It would be better to simply have a directory for each user that they
put files into that they want accessible to others.  A shell account I
on does this.  They have a program on the system (mkftpdir?) that a user
can run to make a dir with their username and ownership in the ftp tree.
