I have a VFAT partition mounted as /G
/dev/hda6 on /G type vfat
It is exported as LFW_G by samba:
unix charset = ascii
Filenames like File_ÄÖÜ show up on clients (dir command), but acessing them is
not possible (file not found). This is true for windows and linux clients.
A 'dir' command shows File_ÄÖÜ, but a 'dir File_ÄÖÜ' command gives file not
Have you tried to set 'unix charset = iso8859-1' instead of ASCII?
Technically speaking ASCII != iso8859-1
Ok, with iso8859-1 it works! Thank you.
unix charset=ascii is mentioned in smb.conf(5) so I took this.
closing. config error with character set.
