Description marco 2006-04-28 07:51:33 UTC
I used Chinese name for file-name with WINDOWS XP. It worked fine but unicode character. However since my Samba upgraded from 2.? to 3.? 
The Disaster happened. I cannot  assess my files any longer from Windows XP. As the file name becomes undeline. How can I do???? Please Help

Either convert your filenames using the tool convmv (http://j3e.de/linux/convmv/convmv-1.09.tar.gz) or add an appropriate 'unix charset' option to your smb.conf

Thank you for the answer. 
But How to setup 'unix charset' option to my smb.conf
Comment 3 Volker Lendecke 2006-04-29 07:40:23 UTC
You need to find out the name of the encoding of your files on disk and set the parameter 'unix charset' in the [global] section of your smb.conf file to that value.

Figuring out the encoding of your files is also necessary if you want to convert your files using convmv.
