Unable to follow ubuntu symlink.

Hi All,

I have a nice and running installation of (community edition) FileRun, but I would like to have some symlinks in my filerun folder to other external (real) folders.

I have created the symlink, and FileRun actually displays it, but when try to enter it, it gives and error of "Invalid Folder".


Is this a limitation of FileRun, or a permissions issue in Ubuntu?


I thank you for you help in advance.


Best Regards

Hi Alvaro!

It may very well be a limitation from FileRun. I will check this and get back to you.

Hi Vlad,


I have some update... and the problem IS NOT a FileRun limitation. 

If the symlink is to (any) directory in /home/user/ then, it works Perfectly.

But, if the symlink is to a samba share folder then it doesn't work.


I'm a fairly newbie on Linux..but this seems to me a permission problem with samba server.
