`` I'm currently using Samba to share files to OS/2 workstations from Linux
servers. It does this job fairly well and does support long file names.
However wildcards of the form *doc are not supported, I have to use *.doc.
This is in Samba 1.9.14. If 1.9.15 has fixed this deficiency then
please let me know and I'll install it.''
I would advise you to install 1.9.15.p5 or later (current is p8 I think)
if you're using OS/2. In earlier versions Samba didn't behave properly
when OS/2 tried to use extended attributes. This resulted in problems
when using OS/2's WorkPlace Shell (WPS). As soon as Andrew got his OS/2
he fixed the problems!
Now I'm using Samba for a few months and being able to organize the
harddisk of my Sun using the OS/2 WPS and it works great! Since most
OS/2 programs know filenames like \\Server\The_Resource\...\The_File
I can even open documents while browsing through the resouces. You
don't even have to connect the drive!
So, don't miss all the fun and upgrade your Samba!
