I have a samba share and it shows a weird filename in windows whenever a file or directory named ends in space or period
If I do
will look like TB5AMV~R in windows.
Is there a fix for this?
UPDATE: my config:
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too # many!) most of which are not shown in this example # # Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) # is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a # # for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you # may wish to enable # # NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm" # to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors. # #======================= Global Settings ===================================== [global] smb ports = 445 workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = # There was a recent security issue in Samba (Feb 5 2010), a claimed # zero-day exploit that exploited an insecure default configuration. # According to an Ubuntu Forums post on the topic, the "wide links" option # now defaults to no. follow symlinks = yes wide links = yes unix extensions = no # added by roy for win7 - 2009-09-09 client ntlmv2 auth = yes # added by roy for recycle bin vfs object = recycle recycle:repository = .RecycleBin recycle:keeptree = yes recycle:exclude = *.tmp, *~, *.bak printcap name = /etc/printcap load printers = no cups options = raw log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log max log size = 50 security = user socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 dns proxy = no #============================ Share Definitions ============================== [homes] comment = Home Directories browseable = yes writable = yes [printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba browseable = no guest ok = no writable = no printable = yes
