Is there any way to display the correct japanese characters in a Windows NT (or any windows less than XP) console or command prompt? Curently when I try to back up Japanese (or English running Japanese) computers arcoss the newtork with command line applications I get:

01/08/03  12:46p               103,936 2002.11.8ì▌î╔Éäê┌.xls
01/19/04  03:52p        <DIR>          11.17ù&#920;û&#9578;Ä&#9576;Æ&#9558;î&#8319;é»é&#9619;ò±ìÉÄæù&#9488;
01/19/04  03:53p        <DIR>          121203ü@ù&#920;û&#9578;Ä&#9576;Æ&#9558;é&#9619;ÄïÄ@Äæù&#9488;

Because of this, I am forced to run a single PC with a Japanese based os just to back up these computers. I would like to centralize everything.

If it is possible, instructions how to do so will warrant the points.

Thanks

I do believe that the answer to this question is no. I beleive I am going to need to get a comptuer with XP Pro to use as my backup server for English & Japanese users. After some testing I beleive this solution will work out very nicely.

You need to apply the correct DOS codepage.  I am assuming JIS, so set your codepage, in DOS.:

SET CODEPAGE = 932

I am not sure that I follow? For WIndows NT Server 4.0 where whould I set this CodePage = 932? I am also not familure with JIS. My current system is an English based Windows NT 4.0 Server, I would really like to be able to display Japanese text correctly when backing up my Japanese users. If I can avoid moving to XP or 2003 I would really like to avoid the CAL & OS upgrade.
