#8753 closed Bug report (invalid)

ISO8859-1 charset conversions(specifically Norwegian chars) isn't working

Using FileZilla in WinXP(SP3). I'm connecting to site (MVS z/OS) to retrieve a file. This file contains Norwegian characters (Ö,Ü & Ä) being converted to junk values after FTP with FileZilla Client. In DOS scripts, its not changed due to "Quote site SBDATACONN=(IBM277,ISO8859-1)" command. I've tried similar charsets(ISO8859-1,CP1250, windows-1250 etc) in FileZilla but it still fails. Please investigate.

FileZilla is not supported anymore.

Configuring a character set in FileZilla Site Manager won't make the server do anything special - it will simply tell FileZilla how to interpret the byte sequences sent by the server. If the server sends crap by default, FileZilla cannot do anything about that.

If you want to make the server sent information in a defined character set, simply tell the server to do so. You use a custom FTP command in your script, so please do the same in FileZilla:

If you still have problems with a current version of FileZilla, please re-open this issue. Thank you for your elaboration.
