I'm using Symbolic Links, and would like to access them from another computer.
I've tried sharing them, but I get the message below.

Any idea how I can over come this?  And yes, I've check, Security should not be an issue.

\\server\Path is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The device is not ready.

    Symbolic links does not work like that - You may consider them just redirects to another place - like aliases.
