NetWare Networking question

Posted on 1997-09-10
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Is there a way to make all of the files on a NetWare server APPEAR lower case instead of upper case at the DOS prompt?   Under NT 3.51 and WFW, all the characters appear as upper case, and in Win95 and NT 4.0 the first character appears as upper case.

There is an environment variable (not sure about WFW) called DIRCMD.  If you put


in your startup, all directory entries will appear in lowercase.
Check out DIR /? for all the options.
