Description Nicolas Trécourt 2003-11-13 10:42:36 UTC
This report can be quite funny, since this "os" is not very widely used nowadays
:) but I have some strange behaviour with samba 3 and wfw311.
I noticed two problems, one of them is just a little annoying, and the second is
more blocking.

It seems that the long filename algorithm has changed sin samba v2, and when
using my wfw311 clients names seems completely random :).

The second configuration, wfw311 server and samba 3 client, is more blocking.
The identification is good, It is possible to mount shares and connect with
But directory content listing fails. smbclient only show an empty directory,
smbmount give this message:

ls: reading directory /mnt/slot0: Input/output error

In both case, transferts on both ways are possible and works well (in the
second, it assume i know the filename :) ).

to correct the first issue (name mangling), set 
mangling method = hash to store the 2.2. behavior.

The second part is actually a duplicate of bug 821.  I'm closing 
this one and adding you to the CC list on that bug.
