Thanks to OpenLink firmware from, I've
now got root access via ssh/telnet to the box. In the smb.conf
of the NAS device, I find:

    client code page = 850
    character set = ISO8859-15

It is running:

root at HD:~# /usr/sbin/smbd -V
Version 2.2.8a-ja-1.1

To what values should I change that?

Thanks again,

Alexander Skwar
