INFO: Directories Do Not Appear When Linking Across Platforms

Last reviewed: July 11, 1997
Article ID: Q171200

The information in this article applies to:

  • Softimage 3D for IRIX, versions 3.51, 3.7
  • Softimage 3D for Windows NT, versions 3.51, 3.7

SUMMARY

If you are using PC-NFS or Samba to connect an NT machine to an IRIX machine (i.e. accessing databases), you may or may not see a directory, depending on how it is symbolically linked. The following shows two different ways of symbolically linking the same directory:

The following link "can" be seen from an NT machine:

   /user/people/softimage/database/PICTURES -> ../PICTURES

While, this link "cannot" be seen:

   /user/people/softimage/database/PICTURES ->
   /user/people/softimage/PICTURES

If you are unable to see a directory, change the way that you are creating your symbolical links.
