When I put in "smb.conf" the following line "client code page = 1256" and
restart smbd, all I get is an error stating that codepage 1256 is not found.

Now I did compile CP1256.TXT to unicode_map.1256 file using
"make_unicodemap" command.

Basically, I have in my codepages directroy a all the codepages files Samba
2.2.1 came with plus the "unicode_map.1256" file.

Do I need a codepage.1256 file or not, and if not, what should I put next to
the  "client code page =" line ?
