    using frs replication, but namespace is domain mode.

    os : windows 2003.

    name space is \\abc.com
    share name is public
    link name is DOC

    Therefore to access, it will display in this manner \\abc.com\public and
    there is a folder link call DOC.

    But when i type this from XP machine, it will display \\abc.com\public\ and
    when i click DOC, it points to another DOC and it seems to go forever .

    eg it becomes like this from XP machine \\abc.com\public\doc\doc\doc\doc\doc
    ......

    When i try on other machine, it looks well.

    What is wrong ?

  2. It sounds like a circular reference, if your domain and namespace are both
    called abc.com

    If you set up a namespace called "Public" with a folder name of "Shared"
    then you would find the namespace at \\abc\public\shared

    - abc is the domain
    - public is the domain root
    - shared is the folder
