hi all,

we want to use samba to connect a windows machine and a linux server, the
linux machine should read the windows-filesystem to backup it. in samba 2.xx
we wasn't able to teach samba the german umlauts or filenames containing a
blank. we tried the character substitution in smb.conf and of course we
called smbmount with iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=cp850, but unforunatly it
doesn't work. are there any changes in samba 3 that may help us solving this

thnx in advance
