Symlinked file reference paths replaced by “/” in Faspex 3.9.3 with Enterprise Server 3.6.0


Symlinked files sent through Faspex do not point to the correct path, meaning Faspex cannot find the file when a user attempts to download it. This affects only Linux users, for Faspex 3.9.3 and Enterprise Server

This is due to the filepath that the symlink file is referencing being replaced by /. For example, if the symlink file points to /home/aspera/packages/test.txt, the resulting symlinked file in Faspex points to /test.txt instead.


  • Product: Enterprise Server + Faspex 3.9.3
  • Operating System: Linux


A new build of Enterprise Server 3.6.0 was released on December 16, 2015 which fixes this issue. Download and reinstall this build ( or later) from the Aspera downloads page.
