I have a web application on a local Linux Apache server that scans a folder for new files and then processes them.
I have an SMB share to this folder and I use Path Finder to copy files over from my Mac (10.6).
The problem is that when I copy files over a whole lot of "._filename" resource fork files get created on the share and then the web application gets confused when it encounters them. I could fix the web application to be a bit smarter and ignore them, but this is also annoying when archiving and copying to external drives.
I have managed to turn off .DS_Store files and I did see a similar question with an answer, but it seemed to be dealing with NTFS Streams and a nsmb.conf file.
