Hi, the problem here is that you are using something that was written
for S3, it should work, but unfortunately you have run into the S4
problem of '%' redirects i.e. they do not work.
Try changing the 'include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.client-%I' line in
smb.conf to 'include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.client-<ipaddress>' ,
changing <ipaddress> for the ipaddress you used in the symlink. I am
sure that it will now work.
