I'm using ubuntu 12.04. and ftp service I've installed vsftpd and it's working fine. But may I'm facing some user complexity.

My system directory like:


When I list directories through ftp, it's going to /rony first. But when I cd /vol or cd .., it's showing 550 Failed to change directory error.


As http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_FTP_server_return_codes states,

550 Requested action not taken. File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access).

You either don't have file system permissions to access these directories or the server is set up such that it treats /home as the file system root.

You could of course have googled a bit and found something like http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-server-73/550-failed-to-change-directory-835003/
