Foreign Characters Getting Stripped from filenames

Reported by: John McNally Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Server

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows XP/Server 2003


Hello, I have a client using FileZilla server 0.9.34 (I have the same and can recreate this). The files are coming from Germany with these names (Gehäusedeckel_D17.ipt, Gehäuse_D17.ipt, Gehäuse_D17 HS.ipt)

When we/he enters the files into our system through FileZilla server, the special characters are being stripped out
(Gehuse_D17 HS.ipt, Gehuse_D17.ipt, Gehusedeckel_D17.ipt ) from the filenames on the server.

This is causing HUGE problems with legacy files that still have the special characters in the filenames. Filezilla does not recognize these older files - at all.

(000018) 6/30/2010 16:30:32 PM - ftpuser2 (> 550 File not found

Is there a setting we can pick to stop Filezilla from stripping out these characters?

Which FTP client software are you using?

It appears that your client is not UTF-8 capable. If that is the case, you have two options: Either refrain from using non-ASCII characters or upgrade to an UTF-8 capable client. Everything else is in violation to the FTP specifications.

Read for details.
