I have a problem viewing text files in NT(Samba) with files stored on a Unix Box. The unix box is actually my FTP server where various OS's FTP to it. The text file is ftp'd from IBM to the Unix Box and viewed in NT. The problem is that the return carriage does not register in the text file. I get a black box where the return carriage is suppose to be. I think it has something to do with Unix only requiring a CR while NT requires a CRLF. Please help. Thanks.
Do a man on dos2unix and unix2dos. These utilities deal with the exact issue you are having.
