Hi John,

We have been trying to reproduce this in-house but have
so far been unsuccessful. Would you mind providing us
with binary network captures of each of the steps:

1. dir \\filer\arch\myfolder\myfile.TXT failing
2. dir \\filer\arch\myfolder\myfile.txt working
3. dir \\filer\arch\myfolder
4. dir \\filer\arch\myfolder\myfile.TXT working

What version of Windows are you running on your client?

Thanks Alan for the reply.
Could you explain how lookuppnvp is being used exactly?

The behavior I am describing is intermittent somewhat. We are trying to narrow 
down what's happening.
Direct access to a file for the first time from a client seems to be case 
sensitive. Example:
dir \\filer\arch\myfolder\myfile.TXT fails.
dir \\filer\arch\myfolder\myfile.txt works.

As soon as you issue "dir \\filer\arch\myfolder\", the case sensitivity goes away and 
"dir \\filer\arch\myfolder\myfile.TXT" starts working.
