I have a machine with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11.2 / x64.
On that machine I have a Samba share, and in a directory under that share are symbolic links to directories not within the share tree.
By default Samba is set not to follow those links for security reasons even if the corresponding user has sufficient rights to these files. It won't even do that if the destination is another share's content where the user has equal rights.
Which configuration options are needed to get completely rid of that restriction ?
Here are the corresponding parts of my smb.conf:
security = user
follow symlinks = Yes
comment = This is the share
inherit acls = Yes
path = /theshare
read only = No
valid users = theuser
