Links that point to areas within the directory tree exported by the server are always allowed; this parameter controls access only to areas that are outside the directory tree being exported. Note that setting this parameter can have a negative effect on your server performance due to the extra system calls that Samba has to do in order to perform the link checks. Default: wide links = yes This is samba 2:3.4.5~dfsg-1. Note the name is wide links, not wide_links.
