Can please someone explain the following problem:
I have a Windows 95 box, Czech edition (it uses eastern-european windows
code page cp 1250 for character encoding) named flex with a share
called c . On c, there is a file which contain some czech characters in
I have another box with a fresh fedora linux instalation and a freshly
compiled samba 3.0.2. UTF-8 is used for character encoding.
I can read files on flex by:
smbclient \\\\flex\\c password
or even transfer them. I don't have any smb.conf, just use smbclient.
But the czech characters are wrong. They look like the smbclient assumed
western character encoding.
After reading docs, I assumed that smbclient >3.0 will negotiate the
code pages with clients on the fly. What is wrong?
Can I set manually clients code page on the smbclient command line ?
