SFTP requires UTF-8 as defined in the SFTP specifications.

See, section 6.2:
"In order to comply with IETF Policy on Character Sets and Languages, all filenames are to be encoded in UTF-8. [...] The server is responsible for converting the UNICODE data to whatever canonical form it requires."

You need to upgrade to a proper server that uses the correct encoding.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
