First of all: I have read http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Character_Set and you could reject this request simply based on the fact that UTF-8 isn't used. However, please read on.
The problem is that renaming works, but downloading fails. I would have understood if both failed. This inconsistent behavior seems strange and is a bug in my view.
The server is a CentOS 4.7 with OpenSSH 3.9p1. It's using iso-8859-1 as default charset. When FileZilla connects, it deactivates UTF-8 (because the output of the ls command contains illegal characters I guess - a test file named "æøå.txt"). When I try to download the file "æøå.txt", it fails:
Command: get "æøå.txt" "C:\Documents and Settings\Hans\Desktop\æøå.txt" Error: /home/hans/æøå.txt: open for read: no such file or directory
However, renaming works:
Command: mv "æøå.txt" "æøa.txt" Status: /home/hans/æøå.txt -> /home/hans/æøa.txt
It's probably my lack of knowledge when it comes to the SFTP protocol, that makes this behavior weird to me.
Thanks for your time and effort - FileZilla is great!
