Issue for FileZilla Client(v3.10.0.1): Can't auto identify the character-set from the FTP server correctly

Reported by: yaray Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
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.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
