Topic "Symbolic links in COM"

Author Message

I have searched and seen Symbolic link in directories were introduced in 2002 in the GUI. Has this been implemented in COM ?

Using VBScript I have tried both:
MySessionOptions.AddRawSettings "FollowDirectorySymlinks",1
MySessionOptions.AddRawSettings "FollowDirectorySymlinks","1"

To try an enable this to no avail and still get :

Real path and requested remote path do not match: "/pokgsa-p5/01/pti/provider/miw/prod/" "/projects/p/pti/provider/miw/prod/"

How do you get that "Real Path" value "/pokgsa-p5/01/pti/provider/miw/prod/" ? If I could just get that I could easily change to it.

I have tried this actual name and it works fine. But I dont want to do this I want to use the symbolic reference as I have to interface with lots of servers with these and finding out and maintaining changes is not realistic.

I have seen others get the message and then redo using the Real path parsed from this error. Seems a complicated hack.

You should get the same error in GUI, don't you?

This change should help you:

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a development version of WinSCP for testing?

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
