SOAK: Mapping SAMBA file extensions

Isn't there a way to make SAMBA show you a different file extension than what a file really has, based on pre-specified mappings? I could have sworn I saw this somewhere, but I can't find any mention of it now.

For example, I have some *.iso files on my server. I want the users who map to the directory they are in see them as *.img files instead. I don't want to simply rename them because I want them to stay as *.iso files when accessed locally.

You all are my virtual office-mates since I work at home, so I figured I'd ask while I continue my search online.

Use the mangled map paramater.

mangled map = (*.iso *.img)

Thank you! That works perfectly.
