This old dos program looks at the short dos name on the left not the
windows long name on the right. Yesterday in the book Samba Unleashed
by Steve Litt et al., I found the an example using "mangle case = yes" that
referred to the name mapping from long names to 8.3 format.
Is this the one parameter that needs to change?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND ATTENTION!!
