[DeleGate-En] Re: delegate strips leading slash for ftp absolute paths

 |I'm using delegate to proxy ftp requests to a remote server, but hit a
 |problem.  I am running delegate with the following config:
 |/usr/bin/delegated -f -P21 SERVER=ftp PERMIT="*:*:*"  REMITTABLE="*" MOUNT="/ftproot* ftp://ftphost/ftproot/* " "

I've not yet read the problem but at least it must be like

  MOUNT="/ftproot/* ftp://ftphost/ftproot/*"

instread of yours:

  MOUNT="/ftproot* ftp://ftphost/ftproot/*"

 |I can sucessfully loging and cd around manually and get a file, however,
 |when I use some tool (wget, ncftpget, and others for example), such as:
 |     wget ftp://userxyz:pass123@delegatehost/ftproot/x/y/z/
 |it fails with a file not found.  This seems to occur becuase the leading
 |slash that makes this an absolute path is being stripped by delegate..
 |If I log into the ftp server direclty, it puts me in my home directory
 |(/home/userxyz) by default and since delegate is stripping the leading
 |slash, is trying to issue a cwd ftproot/x/y/z from my home directory for
 |an absolute path of /home/userxyz/ftproot/x/y/z  which of course doesnt
 | exist.  This is the raw output of the above wget command:
 |~ > wget ftp://userxyz:pass123@delegateHost/ftproot/x/y/z/
 |--19:09:04--  ftp://userxyz:*password*@delegateHost/ftproot/z/y/z/
 |           => `'
 |Resolving delegateHost ...
 |Connecting to delegateHost||:21... connected.
 |Logging in as userxyz ... Logged in!
 |==> SYST ... done.    ==> PWD ... done.
 |==> TYPE I ... done.  ==> CWD /ftproot/x/y/z ...
 |No such directory `ftproot/x/y/z'.
 |Note wget first reports it is getting the full absolute path with the
 |leading slash:
 |      ==> TYPE I ... done.  ==> CWD /ftproot/x/y/z ...
 |But the error message that comes back from the server lacks the leading
 |   No such directory `ftproot/x/y/z'.
 |If I simply change my the hostname in the wget to go direcly to ftphost
 |rather than through delegate, it works successfully, so I think delegate
 |has a bug where leading slashes are stripped off incorrectly.
