i'm having a little problem with samba (or Windows98 ?).
The story :
I'm using the program WHFC (Windows Hylafax Client) on
a W2k and Win98-client.
Samba 2.2.5 is running on Suse LINUX 7.1 Kernel 2.4.18.
The WHFC-program uses a share on the LINUX-server
(actually the share contains tif-images of received
No problems with W2k, but with Win98.
The WHFC-client shows the files correctly in downcases
(ohhh, is this the right word ?), for instance :
When running under W2k everything is okay,
i can see the file and i can show it using an image-viewer
called by WHFC with the command line
"D:\Programme\Windows NT\Zubehör\ImageVue\kodakimg.exe w:\%s" .
This is the same under W2k and Win98 .
When running under Win98 the file is converted to uppercase
(FAX00004.TIF) and it cannot be found by the image-viewer
(which is correct as FAX00004.TIF doesn't exist).
So what's happening ?
The whole thing worked fine for about two years under
W2k AND Win98. The only thing i changed was the samba-version,
which was upgraded from 2.2.3a to 2.2.5.
Is it a really problem of samba or of Win98 (maybe with some option
in Win98) ?
Has it to do with mangling ?
I show you the parts of smb.conf which belong to the share :
server string = Samba-PDC %v on %h
workgroup = WORKGROUP
encrypt passwords = yes
netbios name = 486dx66
domain master = Yes
local master = Yes
prefered master = yes
wins support = no
wins proxy = no
security = user
os level = 255
domain logons = yes
logon drive = v:
logon path = \\%N\%u\ntprofile\%a
logon home = \\%N\%u\.profiles
logon script = logonsmb.bat
add user script = /usr/local/sbin/mkuser %u user
log level = 1
ldap server = xyz
ldap suffix = "xyz"
ldap admin dn = "xyz"
ldap ssl = start_tls

I would be happy if someone on the list could tell me what's going
