I was able to see the entire directory structure from the root up.
I logged off and later re-logged into the system with the same credentials and all I can see now is my share file, the public and web directory. I see /root but can't get to any of the other directories /var /etc etc.
If I log in using bitvise same credentials and via the command line and do a cd / I get to the root level and can access everything from there.
Any help is appreciated as it would be great to be able to navigate without having to use command line and the vi editor!
