Can Domino use directory links to reach databases?

The released version of Domino 1.5 can access DIR links by default, but betas acted the opposite way. To disable directory link support, put DominoNoDirLinks=1 in your NOTES.INI file. With this setting, Domino will limit web users from using dirlinks, but allows Notes clients and the Notes server to use the dirlinks.
If you do allow Domino to use DIR links, it will not use the ACLs specified in the .dir files so you should make sure the database ACLs are set up properly for the databases you put in the directory pointed to by the DIR link.

Applies to Notes Versions: 4, 4.5, 4.6, 5
