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.
