Topic "Remote codepage setting"

Author Message



I am missing "Remote codepage setting" in WinSCP. We are using Samba server with codepage ISO8859-2.

From Windows clients, everything is OK, from Linux shell as well. Even from remote SSH shell in Windows (PuTTY) everything goes well but: Every Windows SFTP client I tried (and I tried almost all) scrambles accented characters in filenames (Czech characters in our case).

I discovered only one (commerical) SFTP client - PrivateShell - with configurable remote codepage. When I use "ISO8859-2" setting, the filenames are OK. Is there a way how to achieve this using WinSCP or is it because of some incorrect setting our our linux file server?

Thank you for your ideas!
