Hi All,

I have a SCO 5.0.5 system that does not allow a 250MB file to be
copied to the share as specified below. I have tries a number of
combinations, and also the same details on a linux 2.2.7 system
without a problem. The problem seems to be SCO.

From explorer the copy does not start, though from DOS I can get
approximately 128MB copied before the "invalid drive" choice is
presented to me.

I am using the binary as downloaded from - 


Additionally the users have been complaining about "permissions
errors.", Finally this was not happening with samba.2.0.5a, but 2.25
was installed for XP/2000 reasons.

I was not able to glean much from the logs, level 1 or 10.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Explorer errors:
W2K cannot copy fa: the specified network name is no longer available.
W95 cannot copy or replace fa: the specified network name is no longer
