Hmm. I would either think it a bug for Samba to be unable to tell MSWindows that it had a file open for read, or a rather advanced technique for Samba to be able to understand from simply mounting the share as read-only that it could let MSWindows forego a lock on a multiply opened file. Mayb I'm just confused. -- Joel Rees, programmer, Kansai Systems Group Altech Corporation (Alpsgiken), Osaka, Japan http://www.alpsgiken.co.jp _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
