Hi

I use Samba 2.0.4b.
When I copy a file with a filename including a special
character from a win95 machine to my linux server, I dont find the special
characters any more. They have changed to "_" or something like that.

What can I do?
Do I have to write something special in the smb.conf?

You might want to set these values :

   client code page = 850
   character set = ISO8859-1

client code page is what code page your Windows stations are using. It is
850 for most western european countrys.

character set is what set of characters your samba server is using.

1. Problems with "hide dot files" and "write list" options

Hello,

I run samba 2.2.3a on FreeBSD 4.3 box. My smb.conf is

[global]

   workgroup = INSTALL

   server string = INSTALL

   hosts allow = 172.16. 127.

   load printers = no

   log file = /var/log/log.%m
   max log size = 5

   security = user
   encrypt passwords = yes

   socket options = TCP_NODELAY

   local master = no
   domain master = no
   preferred master = no

   client code page=850

[inst]
   comment = Installation
   path = /HOME1/INSTALL
   browsable = no
   write list = writer

All users should have read access to inst but only the user readerwriter
read/write access. And all dot files should be hidden.

When I run testparm I get from the [global] section the default values

        read only = Yes
        hide dot files = Yes

and from the [inst] section:

[inst]
        comment = Installation
        path = /HOME1/INSTALL
        write list = readerwriter
        browseable = No

But the user readerwriter may not write to the share. And I see all dot files.

Anything wrong with the smb.conf? Thanks in advance.
