discussion of How to see long file names: Peer-2-Peer with WIN95 and Warp V4?
ma> I have set up a small home network with one WIN95 computer and my OS/2
ma> I set up NetBIOS as File and Print 'sharer'.
ma> When ever I look at the files and directories on the WIN95 machine
ma> from the OS2 machine I can only see the mangled file 8.3 names.

ma> I would like to be able to see the WIN95 long filenames... Is there
ma> anything I can do?
There may be a workaround, but I'm not familiar with any myself. I just
live with the situation and stick to 8.3 filenames when using Win95
Note that OS/2 doesn't have the same problem with NT It sees the long
... AARRGGHH!! I've been subpoenaed to appear in Tagline Court!
