I have a real problem with Netware Client's inability to deliver 8.3 short file names. We have several users (including me) who still use some old DOS programs under Windows 7. Using the newest Novell clients (just upgraded to the latest on Friday) there is no ability to find the true short file names.

How do we work around this? It is very difficult to run the older programs, but they still have great utility for us. We cannot just "guess" what the filename should be, because sometimes Windows delivers some really funky filenames.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Running Windows 7, Netware 5.1, newest NW Client.
