#879 closed Bug report

SFTP using SSH2 garbles line endings

Reported by: billygray Owned by: Alexander Schuch
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: billygray, Alexander Schuch
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


When downloading a text file from an OpenSSH or SSH2
server using the connection type "SFTP using SSH2",
line endings become strange binary character(s) (a
square, in Windows Notepad).

Downloading the same set test files from various SSH2
and OpenSSH servers using the OpenSSH sftp client does
not result in this problem.

Can you please test the latest version of FileZilla, which is version 3.0.7 as of this writing.

And regarding the strange characters, NotePad is known to not be able to display Unix line endings properly. So if it is a newline only, without a preceding carriage return, they might be rendered as those squares by NotePad.
