    I am running the Windows FTP client and getting error

    Code:
    ftp> cd /tmp/mnt/VERTEX2/scripts
    500 OOPS: child died
    Connection closed by remote host.
    A google search points to needing a tweak in vsftpv.conf

    Code:
    seccomp_sandbox=NO
    I have not tried it yet. Has anyone run into this ?

    The problem is that you are trying to change to a directory that you're not allowed to access (strictly speaking it's the path that's the problem).

    EDIT: Try using this instead (assuming VERTEX2/scripts is the folder you have shared in the router's GUI):

    cd /VERTEX2/scripts

    You are right. I have two drives that to FTP appear as rooted on what is /tmp/mnt
    (VERTEX60 is a leftover, nothing mounted there)
    Code:
    230 Login successful.
    ftp> pwd
    257 "/" is the current directory
    ftp> ls
    200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV.
    150 Here comes the directory listing.
    /VERTEX1
    /VERTEX2
    /VERTEX60
    226 Directory send OK.
    ftp: 31 bytes received in 0.01Seconds 2.07Kbytes/sec.
