Solution

In /etc/vsftpd.conf have the following

chroot_list_enable=YES
chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd/chroot_list

create a file chroot_list and add the user who gonna ftp to the ftp server
the users home directory is the ftp root directory
Obviously the ftp user is a local user

so it works perfect .. but i still wonder why IE6 was working fine

thnks

fabian
