Of course,

con is DOS language for console, the problem is with windows

Try to make a dir named prn or lpt1, it won't work either (tested with NT
TSE 4.0 and samba 2.0.6 on HP-UX)

Hallo everybody!
I have curios effect if I name a directory "Con" or "con" on our Linux /
Samba-Server. Under Win this directory cannot be renamed, deleted or
(the rights are correct...). There pops up an error-message, telling me the
filename is too long or the file is damaged. If I extend or shorten the
of the directory under Linux everything works on the win-machines, I can do
everything with the directory. I just can't name it "Con".Wouldn't be that
bad if I would not need this name, but I do.
