       vfs_catia - translate illegal characters in Catia filenames


       vfs objects = catia


       This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

       The Catia CAD package commonly creates filenames that use characters that are illegal in
       CIFS filenames. The vfs_catia VFS module implements a character mapping so that these
       files can be shared with CIFS clients.

       This module is stackable.

       The parameter "catia:mappings" specifies the mapping on a per-character basis, see below.


       catia:mappings = SERVER_HEX_CHAR:CLIENT_HEX_CHAR
           SERVER_HEX_CHAR specifies a 0x prefixed hexedecimal character code that, when included
           in a Samba server-side filename, will be mapped to CLIENT_HEX_CHAR for the CIFS

           The same mapping occurs in the opposite direction. Multiple character mappings are
           separated by a comma.


       Map server-side quotation-marks (") to client-side diaeresis (¨) on filenames in the [CAD]

                path = /data/cad
                vfs objects = catia
                catia:mappings = 0x22:0xa8

       Perform comprehensive mapping of common Catia filename characters:

                path = /data/cad
                vfs objects = catia
                catia:mappings = 0x22:0xa8,0x2a:0xa4,0x2f:0xf8,0x3a:0xf7,0x3c:0xab,0x3e:0xbb,0x3f:0xbf,0x5c:0xff,0x7c:0xa6

       Server-side filename to be translated (Note that the path delimiter "/" is not used here):


       Resulting filename, as seen by the client:



       Character mapping must work in BOTH directions (server -> client and client -> server) to
       get unique and existing file names!

       A NOT working example:

                path = /data/cad
                vfs objects = catia
                catia:mappings = 0x3a:0x5f

       Here the colon ":" is mapped to the underscore "_".

       Assuming a server-side filename "a:should_work", which is translated to "a_should_work"
       for the client.

       BUT the reverse mapping from client "a_should_work" to server will result in
       "a:should:work" - something like "file not found" will be returned.
