I am failing to lock a database file on a unix server (Solaris486) when
the file lock request is sent from Visual Foxpro on Windows 95.
Any suggestions on testing procedures, or even a solution??
Please feel free to assume that I don't know anything about file locks!
I don't even know how Visual Foxpro attempts to lock a file.
Would the Foxpro lock be recognised by any application?
i.e. does Foxpro request a SAMBA lock or does it attempt to keep some
proprietary lock file that only other Foxpro applications would look for?
And does a successful SAMBA lock apply to all possible write access to
the locked file, by whatever means the file is shared out?
