URGENT!!! linux with samba, win9x clients with foxpro


Pls help me,

I have trouble using foxpro (from clients with Win9x) on dbf files managed by samba.
Fox command "pack" is ok for small dbf files, but return error for medium files (8000 records):

"This device does not exist on the network reading drive.
Abort, Retry, Fail?"

1000x Thanks

please do not mark any threads as urgent or similar, it is not urgent for us, and generally considered rude to do this. thanks.

You'll need to give us a little more information. What version of linux are you using? What version of Samba are you using? Does this happen on all your Win9x clients? Is there anything in your smb.log or other log files on the Samba server? Are all users connecting as the same user to the Samba server?

I'm wondering if this is really a locking issue for some reason. Also, how big are the files?

cheers

Jamie...

Is there anything in your logs? Can you do access other files on that Samba server? If so can you access other files on the same network share?

What version of Samba are you running, and was there anything in your logs?

cheers

Yeah, does seem a little odd, it looks like your Windows client is not responding, although your Windows error message seems to suggest that the Samba server is failing to respond!

Are you able to access other areas of the Samba server from your Win98 client? Can you access other files on this same share or is it just a couple of files?

cheers

Jamie...
