accessing unix files under 8.0 (2e)
I mentionned yesterday my difficulty to read unix files from my symbolics
running 8.0. Someone wrote me that this happens because I access them through
symbolic links instead of direct names, which is the case. I verified that
when I use direct names I can read my files again. Unhappily this is not a
very conveninient solution because we have no big Sun server and our files
are spread across several machines. So, does anyone have a solution to access
files through symbolic links?
I apologize for not recalling all of the details, but I was having problems
like this with FTP access to one of our UNIX file servers (which doesn't
run NFS for security reasons). I reported this to customer-reports, and
promptly received a patch which seems to have remedied all problems (at
least ones having to do with this problem area). The patch I have is
labeled as IP-TCP 427.5 (which is not the major version of the IP-TCP
system for released for 8.0).
