Right, good to know. The client is probably not going to be a problem.
Is version 3.6.9 but it is built by a Synology (NAS).
Thank you for the pointer.
I had to set both:
On the server. Problem solved :).
Apparently there was this option in the Synology interface as well.
However I probably unlinked the script that regenerates the config, and
also, it probably didn't set the first parameter. I have verified that
they need both.
VERY HAPPY :D.
There doesn't seem to be an issue on Windows, although I haven't tested
what will happen if I delete a symlink on there (they show up as regular
directories). But just works perfect now. Thank you.
