From my earlier statement in this post.
I run LMCE on a dedicated network without username/password access.
....basically don't be lazy and not use
username/password credentials on 12.04 NAS drives.
The errors in topic=13655.0 helped a bit.
But why symbolic link errors? - that throws you way off. At least it did me.
I feel kinda silly being lazy with an unsecured NAS but I at least learned something - I hope.
Thank you very much for your time (that I wasted).
