In advance, sorry for the spelling errors. English isn't my first language, I will try to be as clear as possible.
I am trying to interconnect folder between them inside my NAS.
Example : I have a folder
Rock where I put all the groups that do rock music, but since some groups don't only do rock; they sometimes try electro or rap styles, for example. So, I make a symbolic link to the folder
Electro BUT I also want to have the possibility to go directly to the folder
Here's an illustration of the paths:
Subsidiary folder :
Use of symbolic link:
And from there I can go on infinitely.
But inside the NAS GUI, I cannot see the symbolic link although I can use it through SSH! So I thought "OK! I will use SFTP" and I can connect to the NAS fine and I can see the symbolic link just fine but every time I try to go inside the folder I get the following error:
This location could not be displayed.
You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of
<Name of the folder>
The folder has mode 777 and my SSH account has the right to use the folder. The worst thing is that I can go inside the folder if I use my terminal but not through GUI.
So my first question is: Does this type of hierarchy have a name?
My main question is: How can I fix this permission issue? Do I need to use another protocol to connect to the NAS?
In advance, thank you.
