JSI Tip 1691. Some Permissions do not migrate from Netware to Windows NT?

On the Edit menu, Add Value name LongNameFlags as a type REG_DWORD. In the DWORD Editor, set the data value to 1.

NOTE: You can use this Value Name to enable/disable long file name support on the NetWare clients. The default is 0.
