Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS Allowing Symlinks with Samba


Apparently in 10.04 you need to add a few lines to allow symlinks in your samba share. I kept getting access denied in Windows.

Under Global, add the following 3 lines:
[global]
follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes
unix extensions = no

Now restart Samba
sudo /etc/init.d/smbd restart

You should be good to go!
