Re: Getting file from remote server gives junk characters

Let's start with attaching a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP) and the corrupted file as well as the original file.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

Getting file from remote server gives junk characters


I have an issue where I get junk characters when I transfer file from remote server to my local windows machine.
I tried different transfer modes but no luck.
I am trying to transfer *.out file.

Can anyone suggest anything that I am missing here?
