Ok created the issue

Hello Cyberduck Team,

we have a Plesk Server (Version 10.4) running Cent-OS, and some issues with a customer, using Cyberduck (latest) and Mac OS 10.6 or 10.7 (error occurs on both):

regardless the FTP setting in Cyberduck being set to UTF-8 or anything else (WESTERN ISO 8859-1 for example) all files arrive with encoding WESTERN!

When using Transmit by the encoding setting does make a difference! So we looked a bit into detail, and i found this:

Normally, it sems that a client has to send:

CLNT clientname

Then everything gets sent in UTF-8.

However, ... some Mac OS X clients ... by default they do not send those commands. There is no easy way to get the clients to send those commands, either.


can you verify, that Cyberduck sends the OPTS UTF8 ON command when transfer mode is set to UTF-8?

thanks in advance.

We do send OPTS UTF8 ON if the server lists UTF8 in response to FEAT. Please post the transcript from the log drawer (⌘-L).
