    Hello,

    Our servers are set up with pureftp, and I'm using the Filezilla client.

    It looks like I'm having transfer errors for any file that contains certain characters (Unicode characters with accents, parentheses, etc) in the path or filename. Is this a known issue with the server or client?

    Thanks

    Hello @outpostmm,

    UTF-8 characters are supported in file names with Pure-FTPd. I confirmed this by accessing FTP on a test server and using the FEAT command:

    Code:
    ftp> feat
    211-Extensions supported:
     EPRT
     IDLE
     MDTM
     SIZE
     MFMT
     REST STREAM
     MLST type*;size*;sizd*;modify*;UNIX.mode*;UNIX.uid*;UNIX.gid*;unique*;
     MLSD
     AUTH TLS
     PBSZ
     PROT
     UTF8
     TVFS
     ESTA
     PASV
     EPSV
     SPSV
    211 End.
    As you can see, it lists support for UTF8. Additionally, uploading a test file with parenthesis worked well:

    Code:
    ftp> put "12(345).test"
    local: 12(345).test remote: 12(345).test
    229 Entering Extended Passive Mode (|||58833|)
    150 Accepted data connection
         0        0.00 KiB/s
    226 File successfully transferred
    Thank you.
