I am trying to mirror a remote FTP directory that contains a number of symbolic links. The symbolic links are recognized as links in the "Get Info" panel. When Cyberduck downloads one of the symbolic links the local directory ends up containing the target of the link instead of a link. The permissions of the local copy are also wrong (-rwxr-xr-x instead of -rw-r--r--).
All of this leads me to conclude that even though Cyberduck understands that the file is a link it resolves the link and transfers the destination file instead of creating a link locally. I think this behavior is wrong or at least warrants a preferences setting.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
In 2697e98. Introduce new boolean properties path.symboliclink.resolve and local.symboliclink.resolve to resolve files instad of creating symlinks when set to true. On Mac, both settings are set to false by default, on Windows links are always resolved.
