Subj:	Rules file for CERN server question

I am using CERN's WWW server on a VMS 5.5-2 system with MULTINET 3.2C.
I am trying to serve documents located in different directories (and disks)
but I have not been able to figure out the exact syntax for my rules file.
Or, maybe, what I am trying to do cannot be done.
Here is the rules file I am using. I have no problem http serving docs under
the /www/* directory tree. Anything outside this tree, is not getting served.

# httpd.conf
# Rules file for my WWW server
pass	/		file:/diska/www/welcome.html
pass	/*		file:/diska/www/*
map     /ftp/*		file:/diska/www/ftp/*   
map	/star/*		file:/diskb/star/*
map	/opal/*		file:/diskc/opal/*
pass	file:/diska/www/ftp/*	<-- this works ok
pass	file:/diskb/star/*	<-- does not work
pass	file:/diskc/opal/*	<-- does not work
fail	*
htbin	/diska/www/htbin

I have also tried passing the files without mapping, but it did not work either.

Any help appreciated.
