Problems with international characters and NWclient

Hi

I am having problems when I create a file on a NSS volume with the Novell
Client32 that contains some international characters. The volume is also
distributed as a share through Samba.

This is what happens.

1. I create a file with a name that contains the swedish characters åäö on a
NSS volume from a Windows workstation that has the NWclient 4.91. The name
looks correct on my workstation but Samba reports the characters as
[86][84][94].

2. I create a file contains the same characters from a workstation where the
volume is mounted as a smb share. The file looks correct viewing them from
Samba and at the Linux console, but NWclient sees them as
[00e5][00e4][00f6].

There seems to be som codepage problems, but how do I correct this?

Regards
B Sundqvist

Re: Problems with international characters and NWclient

Sounds like you don't have Unicode support enabled on the Novell Client.
Take a look at the doco for Novell Client 4.91 for Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003, and if
necessary ask in the Novell Client for Windows forums
(novell.support.netware.client.winnt-2x-xp).

Re: Problems with international characters and NWclient

Thank you.

Enabling UTF8 support in NWclient helped the problem. I also verified that
enabling UTF8 works with existing NW servers without problem.
