#1146 closed Bug report

Countryspecific characters do not work in passwords

Description

I know, there are a lot of bugreports concerning
difficulties with countryspecific characters (for
example ÄÖÜ) in various contexts.
May I draw your attention to the fact, that in the
FileZilla-Client these characters do not work in
passwords as well.

Users are accustomed to use such characters in
passwords, because they are able to use them - for
example with Servers as Serv-U and clients like
CuteFTP and FTP-Voyager.

Much to my regret this is a reason, why FileZilla at
the present time cannot be recommendet as alternative
to these clients.
Perhaps you can set the bug on the list.

Thanks
Herby

If you follow the FTP standards you have two options if:
1) Don't use any non-english characters at all
2) Use an UTF-8 capable server
