Samba probably ought to be doing the same kind of remapping (as Windows
does in SFU) so that NFS users and local users can see the same file
names as the remote users.
A test patch for the cifs client (remaps the illegal characters, except
for '*' (which is hard because it is needed for readdir - and can not be
globally mapped). This patch allows you to create, view, list, stat,
remove etc. files with six of the seven key filename characters (legal
to Linux/Unix, illegal to Windows).
: < > | ? \
This allows recognizing/using remotely files created by SFU on Windows
servers as well.
