#4463 closed Bug report (rejected)

Cannot download or upload into UTF 8 named directorys.

Keywords: utf8, encoding Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista


I found a bug in FileZilla client 3.2.4.

I connect via SFTP to my university server. This server is a linux system and I access this server with Samba at Windows XP.

When I create directories with special chars (e.g. German Umlaute ÄÖÜß), then Windows can read the directory names correctly, but Linux reads the name wrong because it is not decoding the UTF 8. So "Übungsblatt 1.pdf" is actually "ܜbungsblatt 1.pdf". But that's not the problem.

The problem is, that if I have a directory which is named e.g. "Übung 1" (this is the linux-filesystem name!), then I cannot download something from this directory. Some file actions like rename or uploading are working, some file actions doesn't work. Probably, FileZilla can only handle ASCII directory names.

A log (German):
Befehl: cd "bbb"
Fehler: Directory /home/d.marschall/public_html/Informatik Bachelor 2 (SS 2009)/Techniken der Programmentwicklung/Übung 1/bbb: no such file or directory
Fehler: Verzeichnisinhalt konnte nicht empfangen werden

Please look at my screenshot.

FileZilla is fully UTF-8 capable.

If the server however does not use UTF-8, you should see the following in the messagelog:
"Status: Invalid character sequence received, disabling UTF-8."

Thank you for information. Yes, I see that message in the log and I could solve that problem with enforce the UTF 8 in the connection manager.

But after this there are still directories which are not renameable/moveable/accessable. Directories which were created with special chars inside the SSH shell have the special chars in their linux-filesystem-name. This name is also correctly showed, but nothing can be made with the directory, also not deleted. Is is normal, that FileZilla cannot access such directories?
