#1132 closed Bug report

UTF characters in filenames -> transfer problems

Reported by: rdsutter Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: rdsutter, tommywu, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


When connecting to a SSH server (Windows 2003 with
Vandyke VShell SSH) by SFTP using SSH2, the filenames
containing "special characters" are displayed
incorrectly in the remote window AND cannot be
transfered (transfer error).

file name on server: dùçàèéóòöüïëê.txt
displayed name on remote site:

Uploading of a file containg special characters is
not possible. The file above is transfered on the
server and receives the name "d" on the server.

The contents of the file (also containing special
characters) is transfered correctly.

Setting "use UTF-8 on server if avaible" from auto to
force and to never does NOT solve the problem.

Please note, the tool "winscp" displays the remote
files correctly (handles the special characters
correctly), so this is not a server issue.

Kind regards.

thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately the patched version
on the CVS server did not solve the problem...

FileZilla 3 should be able to handle this.
