JSI Tip 0636 - Number of files in a FPNW folder is limited to 16k.

When a client connects to an FPNW (Microsoft File and Print Services for NetWare) volume, they can not see files in very large directories. If more than approximately 16,000 files exist in an FPNW folder, clients can not see them.

There is currently no solution other than to reduce the file count in the folder to something below 16,000 files.
