#4261 closed Bug report (rejected)

Character encoding bug

Reported by: D-4 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: japanese, SJIS, encoding Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version: Mandriva 2007 Spring


Create a folder named "パーソナル" (without the quotes) on a server using the SJIS character encoding (japanese). (Mostly Microsoft Windows Japanese-hosted)

In the remote directory tab, it will display correctly. However, in the remote tree list and in the log, it displays as "ƒp[ƒ/ƒiƒ‹" (without the quotes). It is possible to enter into that directory, but any operation done within it produce a bug - creating something in it creates it in the parent directory, it's impossible to download files that were put in there by another user, etc.

The same name as a file seems to cause no problem, only a folder does.

a server using the SJIS character encoding

Such a server is in blatant violation to the FTP specifications. Read

I meant that the remote file system is SJIS. If that is still in violation with the FTP specifications, why was mostly complete support implemented at the first place?

Then your server has to convert it into UTF-8 or alternatively transliterate it into ASCII.

What FileZilla does on broken servers is guesswork if it encounters non-UTF-8 data. Some random sequence of bytes could be in absolutely any encoding.
