Cannot copy files from MAC to Windows Sever share
Posted on 2007-11-15
Hope someone can help.
I have a client that uses mostly Windows PC's but has a few MAC's as well.
They recently moved offices and since then the MAC guys cannot copy files over to a Windows 2000 Server share. They get an error stating the filename is too long or contains invalid/corrupt characters.
The Windows PC's have no problems. But, if a PC copies a file over that has a filename over a certain length(possibly 8 characters) then the MAC cannot open the file.
The folder is setup as both a windows share and a MAC share.
As far as I'm aware nothing has changed apart from their physical location.
The files that are being copied are images, mostly jpgs.
The wndows server is located in their DMZ.
The MACs are running Tiger(not sure of exact version) and the server is Windows Server 2000 SP4.
