Which as of the 1995 version 3 RFC, clearly defines LINK and SYMLINK
protocol commands.   Unfortunately, it also documents that some
servers might not support LINK or even SYMLINK and introduces a FSINFO
command that a client can use to determine ahead of time if a server
supports these or other features.   So the real answer is "it depends"
on your local implementation.   See

for details.
