My samba share is blocking specific extensions.

Before I start with the explanation of my issue, please note, I am completely new to Linux. That having been said, I know this about my situation.

1. It's a Debain Linux box I'm having the issue on.
2. When you connect to the samba share, it allows you to copy anything except .sql and .ph files.
3. In the smb.conf (I verified this is the file samba is using for it's config) there is no veto.

Where else could samba exclude certain files from being copied to one of it's shares?

I don't know if I've given enough information about this issue, but if you need more info, let me know. Please let me know how to get the info though.

Are the file permissions/ownership any different from other files in the share? How big is the file? If you rename a file that currently does transfer and give it a .sql extension, will it block the transfer?

The files I'm trying to copy are coming from the same directory on the same Windows box with the same permissions. They are going to the same directory on the Linux box. I set the permission to RWX for everyone on the Linux box. Still the same thing. Anything but .sql and .php will copy. The google research I did led me to believe it was an issue with veto because only specific file types are being blocked. But, as I said there is no veto set in the smb.conf

The file size does not matter. I have tested this with something only 1k up to several Megs in size.

I created a new .txt file on the Windows box and I can transfer that, but if the same file is renamed to .sql on the Windows box then transferred to the Linux box it fails. If you create a new file on the Linux box then rename it to .sql on the Linux box it works.

Also, if you zip up the files then uncompress them on the Linux box they transer that way.
