Hi, I have an ftp server with users accounts all setup. The users will access their home directories through this server. How can they share their files/directories to other users?

Create another share

You could just create a common share that is shared for particular users or all of your users. I hope this answers your question. Try this hopefully it helps in creating shares.

Hey man,

What exact server are you running on? It's important as different FTP programs utilize different permissions, with different servers. Also configuring your permissions which is very important will be dependent upon the system.

Your users will need some kind of program to access the FTP server. We use WS_FTPPRO Lite. It's effective and allows users to browse all folders and move about with ease. You can even install the server side of it, and manage direct permissions to your individual directories.

It's important your perms. are setup correctly, I can assist you with this but I need to know the environment of your server variables. (Linux, Fedora Core, Windows Servers, etc..)

I am not entirely sure I understand your question...If you have already configured a folder to allow FTP access...and the user accounts are created and have access to that folder...and the perms. are matching on both sides, (Server and Client) all users should be able to just move about freely with no errors.

Are they receiving errors? I'll be checking this regularly, please let me know.
