To enable symlinks in Samba for filesharing across platforms inWindows, modify
and add in the [global] section:
follow symlinks = yes
unix extensions = no
There has been some discussion about
wide symlinks = yes
However, due to the attack vector on Samba servers from Windows allowing file traversion, back in February 2010, you may want to force-set
wide symlinks to no– it works without that declaration and is set to no by default.
