hi..I am using winscp to transfer file to server.When sending the file the name of the file which contains special characters are getting replaced with underscores (_).

Any specific reason for this ?

the file body also contains those characters but they are not getting replaced...

I do not think WinSCP is doing that. It may be the server.

Anyway, please post a full log file showing the problem.

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 may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

Yes you are right. Winscp was not the root cause of this issue.
