Not sure if I'm missing the point here, but is it only 1 file or many
files with Chinese characters in the filenames? Does the file *have* to
maintain its original name - could you rename it to something else in
the source file system just for the duration of the copy?
Also, from a shell looking at the smb mount (ls -al), how does the file
name appear on the screen? Are you able to 'cat' it if you wrap escape
characters around the file name? If this is the case you may be able to
copy the file without renaming it by using escape characters. If you
have a lot of files with this problem I'd suggest a writing a small
script along the lines of 'for file in * do ......<mess with
Something else to try.......put the troublesome file in a zip file on
the windows box/file system, and then copy the zip file and try
unzipping it on the Linux box - just make sure the zip file has a file
name that's using ASCII printables! :-)
