Filezilla server needs to have an option to rename files with invalid characters in the filename rather than simply failing the transfer with error 550. It's not always possible to use a different FTP client that handles the renaming (current versions of Filezilla Client do handle renaming since trac ticket 3227). In my case Cisco IOS devices add a timestamp to the filenames that are saved off via FTP with colons in them. I'm sure many other issues between windows/linux filesystems occure as well.
Filezilla server should have an option to accept invalidly named files by renaming the invalid characters to underscores or something. The IIS FTP server has this option.
