Folder Permission through Samba Access


I tried to research the forum to see if there is already a written solution for this problem but I see that there is none yet.

So, here it goes :

I connect my winxp computer to an ubuntu server through samba connection. The connection works.

In my linux home directory, there is a softlink to another root directory, it does not open.

I checked the permission of the actual directory and it has a 777 permission, I do wonder why can't I access it.

I tried to log in to the server, i opened the softlink, it opens.

What seems to be the problem?

Please advise.
