The "site symlink" [symlink] [target] extension

This command allows an FTP client to create a symbolic link, [symlink], to a target directory, [target].

ftp> quote "site symlink linkto-dir dir"
200 linkto-dir linked to dir

A file listing then shows the resulting linkage. For example:

ftp> ls
200 PORT command successful.
