No, the parameter is named "unix charset", not "charset"! In smb.conf, you'll need a parameter that says:

unix charset = UTF8

charset = UTF8 gives me that error:
Unknown parameter encountered: "charset"
Ignoring unknown parameter "charset"


Do you have unix charset = UTF8 in smb.conf?

I have a file server with windows and I am creating a new Fedora Core 3
+ Samba 3.0.10-1.fc3 file server...
But i have many, many files that have chars like ç, ã, é in their
name... When I move the files to the Samba server, all that unicode
chars are changed to ?
I need a solution for that to move on, because my boss will not like to
stop using that chars...

Thanks for any help
