    Question Long Filenames
    We are having problems saving files from a Mac OSX 10.4 to a Windows 2003 server, the problem is when we try and save files with a filename over 27 Characters We just get an error back saying "The operation could not be completed (Error -37)". The file will save to the local disk no problem but the only way we can get it on the server is if we shorten the filename to less than 27 characters. Saving from Windows clients to the server is also fine.

    Is this a limitation on the Server side from Mac Clients or can this be done?

    Any help would be appreciated.
