Problem when server uses non-UTF8 encoding

Reported by: werre2 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Other

Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Filezilla 3 recursive directory download does not get any files, it just creates the directories, if the directory path contains any non-ASCII characters and the server fs uses ISO-8859-1 encoding. The error message is 'critical failure'.

The flow:

  1. Recursive upload works...
  2. ...but the directory names get mangled on server side
  3. Recursive download fails

Tested with Filezilla client running on 32bit Win XP SP2 patched to level of 23-Apr-2008. On the server side, Red Hat 8.2 and vsftpd-1.1.3-8. Ext3 fs with default options.

The recursive download works with version 2 of Filezilla client.

No wonder you have problems if the server violates the FTP standard.
