Hello there,

If i create a file starting with nul. via command shell access, example:
nul.txt or nul.blaat.txt
Samba show's this file scrambled, i've tested this on samba 3.04 on AIX and
FC2 Linux  samba 3.0.7-2.

My file nul.txt is showed via samba as: NDH6SA~M.TXT.

I have a default samba configuration:

        workgroup = C3D-VR.COM
        server string = C3D Samba Server
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        max log size = 50
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        preferred master = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        dns proxy = No
        wins support = Yes
        ldap ssl = no
        idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
        idmap gid = 16777216-33554431

        comment = Home Directories
        read only = No
        browseable = No

Does somebody know how samba can show the file as it is?

With kind regards,
