I am using samba under ubuntu 14.04 and I try to share a folder which includes a symlink to a directory that lies on an external drive. If I access the samba share from other devices (like android phone or windows PC) it does not show the symlink - everything else works fine.
I found multiple solution suggestions but nothing worked.
Currently I added the following lines in the
global section before I restarted samba:
follow symlinks = yes unix extensions = no wide links = yes allow insecure wide links = yes
However it does not change anything. I am aware of the security risks, but in this case it is no problem. Can anyone help here?
