Re: Password with special characters working in older version!

5.8: Using UTF-8 for strings (such as password) with SSH protocol. If your SSH password contains non-ASCII characters, and you were able to connect with previous versions of WinSCP, it means that your server does not comply with SSH specification (as older versions of WinSCP did not). You will not be able to login with the new version of WinSCP. Change your password to ASCII characters only as a workaround.

Password with special characters working in older version!

I have a server whose password contains the special character "è" (Latin small letter e with grave). Authentication from GUI in version 5.7.7 works, whilst in 5.15.5 fails.
Where is the problem? And how can I solve it (without changing the password)?
