My Solaris version is 9.0 on Sun Blade100 server.  When I using samba to copy chinese filename files to solaris, from telnet, ftp or in console, the filenames are all garbage.  How can I solve it? Many thanks.

Hi Henry,

   Did you install Chines font? If not, then you can not see the Chines characters.

Hi Henry,

   For the console or login from the console, you need to set the default display font for your terminal by using Chinese font.
   For telnet or ftp, then your client machine need to have ability to display chinese charactors.
For example, if you use chinese Windows, then you can see the Chinese characters when you use telnet.
Or you use some sort of X-window emulator on Windows side such as Hummingbird Exceed, then you need to install Chinese
Font for the Exceed.

   The key point is you need to be able to display the Chinese charactors on the machine you are working at as well as the
application you are using.

   So from the console login, you need to set chinese font as default display font for your (X-)terminal. And from the remote
login, your remote machine need to be able to display Chinese charactors.

Ragards,

Wesly

This is probably a locale issue.  Look in /etc/default/init.  In this file is where the locale for the language set used by the OS is defind.

You should look at the following documentation for using Chinese are you default character set:

http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/816-0667?q=chinese

This documentation gives some rather good examples of how to change to a specific sets of the Chinese language sets that can exist on a server.

One more thing, since you have installed Chinese font,
When you login from the console CDE, there is a "options" button. Click on it and choose "Languages" --> Chinese.
Then you can see Chinese charactors when you login.
