I'm using curlftpfs to mount an ftp to my local drive. Works fine except symlinks. When ever I click on one in the file manager it doesn't work. Here is the curlftpfs code I use:
sudo curlftpfs -o allow_other,transform_symlinks  USER:PASSWORD@SERVER /home/matt/ftp_test/
I've tried this on xubuntu 64 12.04 and xubuntu 32 12.10. Same outcome.
