Description Andrew Zabolotny 2010-04-25 03:32:08 UTC
In smb.conf on the server I have:

unix extensions = no
wide links = yes

Now I mount my home directory. I have two files there: a.text and b.txt which is a link to "/home/zap/a.txt".

Result: The link 'b.txt' is not visible on the client, despite the "wide links" setting.

If I change b.txt to be a link to "a.txt" (no absolute path), it works fine.
