Filename encoding

On my server I have some files with UTF-8 names and some with ISO-8859-15 names. Special characters are shown correct for both types but when I try to rename it, I get errors.

for example:
I have 2 files, one with ISO encoding and one with UTF8 (ISO-shell):
-rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 0 24. Apr 16:00 ISO ä.txt

-rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 0 24. Apr 15:59 UTF8 ä.txt


I can rename the UTF8 file but not the ISO file:
[16:05:26] RNFR /home/upload/test/ISO ä.txt

[16:05:26] 550 RNFR command failed.

(I'm using vsFTPd 2.0.6 on Debian lenny)

Looks like a but with your FTP server. It probably doesn't support UTF8 or not correctly.

You can force ANSI mode in the directory options in the favorites settings.


ANSI works. Thank.
