Description Roberto Colmegna 2004-01-07 10:15:04 UTC
I have a Win2003 srv which share a folder.
Some files in this folder have names like:
"Qualità" (I'm Italian!).

If I use smbclient with "dir" cmd. I correctly obtain:
Qualità    DAR        0  Tue Oct 28 08:36:04 2003

If I use smbmount via:
smbmount "//mysrv/myarch" /mnt/win/ -o username=TEST,password=TEST

and I launch: "ls -la /mnt/win/" I obtain:
dr-xr-xr-x    1 root     root         4096 Oct 28 08:36 Qualit?

Note that correct smbclient-file name "Qualità" became "Qualit?" here.

Another info: sometimes "smbmount" mount the folder but don't return
to prompt (I must use CTRL+Z).

Thanks for "samba" ... a great works!!!!  :)

You need to set the correct charset and codepage. See the smbmount(8) and 
smb.conf(5) manpages for details.
