I have Nas server which has symbolic link to mount device connected by SATA.

Like this

/data/myNas/myfile.avi -> /mnt/externalDisk/myfile.avi (the file is on Nas)
/mnt/externalDisk/myfile.avi (the file is on external device connected to Nas by SATA)

Now, I can access via smb to /data/myNas/ then try to access myfile.avi via VLC(Media player)

On OSX it works.

On Windows it can't open.

On Android, it can't open somehow requires id/password.

At first I think I need to put smb.conf

unix extensions = no
wide links = yes

However it doesn't change anything, and I can access symbolic link in the same Nas.

 /data/myNas/myfile.avi -> /mnt/myNa/myfile2.avi (This works! in the same Nas!)

Is there any solution or give me a hint??
