Issue for FileZilla Client(v188.8.131.52): Can't auto identify the character-set from the FTP server correctly
|Reported by:||yaray||Owned by:|
|Keywords:||auto check character-set||Cc:|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||Windows 7 64bit|
add a FTP site in Site Manager window, use the DEFAULT setting (NOT do any setting) for the character-set: Auto check.
connect to FTP server, browse and double click someone directory in the file list view which has some Chinese words, then the "remote site" and the directory-name of the directory-tree are showed the "Unrecognizable Code". (like Ticket #10096)
When I set character-set to "Use the custom character-set" [set the value is: GBK] in Site Manager, and re-do the above operations, the "remote site" and the directory-name of the directory-tree are all showed the correct Chinese words.
So.., I guess the issue comes from the function of Auto-Check character-set.
(My environment informations of the server and client are all in the Ticket #10096)

Use of any encoding other than UTF-8 or its ASCII subset is not covered by the FTP specifications.
Character set auto-detection is technically impossible as multiple character sets can share the same octet representation.
Either upgrade to a server supporting UTF-8 or refrain from using non-ASCII characters.
