#1136 closed Bug report

Invalid password sent from client to server with euro char

Reported by: jochenwezel Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: jochenwezel, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Environmental information:

  • One of our passwords contains a Euro character (€).
  • The tested connection type is FTP over SSH2
  • We use the .xml config file

In version 2.2.22, it worked fine. Since we updated to
version 2.2.25, the password isn't accepted anymore.

When does the error happens?
The error always happens when we try to open the one

When does the error NOT happens?
I can setup my connection properties, reenter the
password there and click on "connect", then the server
accepts my password. (But if I press "Save" and then
connect again, it doesn't work, too.)

Can you please try if you can reproduce this problem using
the upcoming FileZilla 3? You can download a test version
(i586-mingw32msvc target)

I've tested the build from 2006-07-19 and entered manually
the new connection item to my server. And there has been no
error (also after a restart of the application all things
worked fine).

(But this dev version doesn't use XML files currently, I
don't know if there can be an issue.)

Sorry, I might have changed accidentially the status from
pending to open? If wrong, please correct... Thanks!

FZ3 uses XML files, but they are now stored in

Regarding XML: I've contacted you directly to avoid
unnessary noise here

Regarding this euro char error here a testing overview:

  • FZ 2.2.22: Fine
  • FZ 2.2.25: Bugggy
  • FZ 3 alpha / 2006-07-19: Fine

Proper solution is to either use an UTF-8 enabled server or
to avoid using non-english characters. As workaround you
could use FileZilla 3.
