Description SATOH Fumiyasu 2004-09-07 22:22:12 UTC
As far as you and I know, Windows 9x/Me client has a limitation
that sharename is NOT displayed in the browse list if 
strlen("sharename") > 12.

Samba server limits Windows 9x/Me clients to it at smbd/lanman.c as:
 for (i=0;i<count;i++)
   if( lp_browseable( i )
       && lp_snum_ok( i )
       && (strlen( lp_servicename( i ) ) < 13) )   /* Maximum name length. */
This statement determines whether to limit or not by
strlen("sharename in unix charset"), i.e. byte width of 
sharename in unix charset. This statement must be
strlen("sharename in dos charset") because Windows 9x/Me's
limitation is based in dos charset, not unix charset.

didn't break.
