Description Peter Bailey 2003-10-17 17:26:24 UTC
smbclient isn't handling things correctly somewhere:
I've written a small program and told my shell to protect these arguments:
(bash> smbclient -N //host/share -c 'get "directory/filename with spaces.ext"')

get "directory/filename with spaces.ext"

or with

ls "directory/filename with spaces.ext"

Specifically when there are spaces in the filename (maybe other characters), the
"get" command fails with this error:
NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_FILE listing \directory/filename with spaces.ext

where "ls" gives this:
  filename with spaces.ext      A 699406336  Sun Sep 28 23:45:50 2003

                38113 blocks of size 1048576. 184 blocks available

I have a feeling it's a fat finger error, as that slash in front of the get
error isn't supposed to be there and the ls returns just what I wanted.

ps I'm using the debian package marked only as 3.0.0-debian, which should be
3.0.0 final.

please retest 3.0.3pre1.  if you still see the error, 
please provide more information such as a network trace or 
level 10 debug log of the server (if running against Samba).
