Hello -  I have a solaris 2.7 fileserver. There are many files which have 
characters in them than windows can't handle properly. * ' \ / < > | * :

Is there a way to configure samba so that when a windows client mounts a 
samba share the characters are converted or masked. So that the windows 
client does not get confused by filesnames like *test or *. I don't really 
want to change the filenames on the unix side.
