Does anyone know of any Linux FTP server software with proper Unicode support comparable to that of FileZilla Server used with FileZilla Client (besides using Wine)? For example, a file named フルーツバスケット.txt (with Japanese characters) on a server with vsftpd or Pure-FTPd, for example, will show up something like ãƒ•ãƒ«ãƒ¼ãƒ„ãƒã‚¹ã‚±ãƒƒãƒˆ.txt on FileZilla Client, but on a server with FileZilla Server will show up as the original フルーツバスケット.txt.
This is all I could find:
Contact the communities around vsftpd and pro-ftpd. Alternately contact the support for your Linux distro. Many have multilingual editions with Japanese support.vsftpd sends file names and folder names in the format they are stored; if the FS uses UTF8 vsftpd sends UTF8 without sending UTF8 during FEAT. There's a patch currently in the works that adds an option to the config file to send UTF8.
