Hi from Latvia,
I just started to migrate win98 fileserver with samba. I have problem
that some users sit on old machines win95 utt and some on winxp... and
my native language is some characters what is not in Latin alfabet, just
few but they are. In utf-8 those character is not problem to see... but
I have problem, than if winxp user use in filename those characters
there is problems to read this files from old win9x machines... we have
procedures and educate users how to name files, bet workers change every
month so it is problem to educate how to use fileserver, so I have asked
to force that users can store files only with Latin filecharacters, not
Latvian specific... is it posbile to configure so?
I have two little q. too. Is it problem that samba server has two
network cards and it is connected to diferent internal networks? Or
samba just don`t care.
And I have readed in samba doc. that win old auth. style is not to use
login, just password and share for auth. So old scripts for filserver
don`t contain users for network share, how to configure samba to not use
users just password for samba share authorization?
thanks for great product,
