In my case users should not have the same rights when they
login over the network. I want to prevent that a user
create a symbolik link to a directory where he local has
right for.

Looks like the SmbFile only give information about
the canonical path.

The java.io.File class has the method getAbsolutePath().

Is there a way to detect, if a file is a symbolic link?

(i found a thraed from 2003 that it is not possible,
 but maybe somthing changed)

Thanks for help,
