Problem with SFTP and UTF8 encoding

Hello!

Support for utf8-encoding when using SFTP does not work. Although I set utf8-encoding for file names in the environment to yes, file names and directories are displayed wrong. German umlaute (, , ) are displayed in their isolatin representation of the ut8 encoded string.
Example: "Büro" instead of "Bro"

This does not seem to be a server problem. All other clients I tried (and I tried them all... FileZilla, CoreFTP, SmartFTP, WS_FTP, ...) display these names correctly.

Re: Problem with SFTP and UTF8 encoding

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.

Re: Problem with SFTP and UTF8 encoding

Hello Martin!

I'm using WinSCP 5.5.0,

Settings:
SFTP, if rejected, use FTP;
Language: German;
Default Encoding: UTF-8;

I've allready read the other options, but I didn't find any further Settings.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Problem with SFTP and UTF8 encoding

There's no "SFTP, if rejected, use FTP" mode. So what protocol do you use, SFTP or FTP?
What value do you use for UTF-8 encoding for filenames?
