Can anyone advise if there is a limit on the length of share names in Samba
when accessing via NT Workstation 4.0 clients? It seems that the limit is 12
characters for NT, our Windows 98, 2000 and XP machines work with longer
share names.
If so does anyone know if there is a patch to make long share names work
with NTWS 4.0?

Best regards,
