Thanks for all your support here!
My first post:
Just installed xubuntu in VMWare in preparation to setting up a fileserver in our office. We have a mix of XP and Vista shares (yuck, I know!) and I'd like to be able to mount those and do some tests on filename compatibility, etc prior to building the real server.
Using your guide, I was able to mount one shared volume which is all in roman characters like so:
The charset flags did enable me to view the filenames in Japanese no worries.
sudo mount -t cifs //YUKI/SharedDocs /mnt/sambashare -o username=something,password=something,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777
BUT, I'm unable to mount a SMB share which is using Japanese characters in the share name itself. ie:
Until I set up a new fileserver, there's no chance of having them rename their shares. Do you know, is this error coming from the console or the mount command or the SMB/CIF implementation?
sudo mount -t cifs //YUKI/柿本 - 製作 /mnt/sambashare -o username=something,password=something,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
