When setting up sshfs mounts and Linux samba servers, one can make it so that symbolic links are followed (so they aren’t broken). For sshfs, add the
follow_symlinks option. In
/etc/fstab/, the entry would look something like
sshfs#USERNAME@SERVERNAME: /mnt/acer fuse fsname=sshfs#USERNAME@SERVERNAME:,comment=sshfs,noauto,users,exec,uid=1000,gid=1000,allow_other,reconnect,transform_symlinks,follow_symlinks,BatchMode=yes 0 0
For samba, add the following to either the
[global] options or the individual location in
follow symlinks = yes wide symlinks = yes unix extensions = no
Make sure samba is restarted and the sshfs mount point is re-mounted.
