    Default Problem with foreign characters and FTP get

    Good morning,

    I have a problem when I try to download a file named "Planta Localização.pdf" with the FTP step in Kettle 4.2 (and 5.1 too). The result is "Planta Localização.pdf".

    If I use my usual Filezilla FTP client the name is preserved correctly.

    Do you know if I can fix this? Maybe forcing some configuration in the FTP server? (filezilla server, FTP with explicit SSL encryption mode). Changing something in my Kettle configuration?

    Thanks a lot!

    The server filenames are sent UTF-8 encoded, but your client interprets them as ISO-8859-1 encoded filenames.
    In my Kettle version "Get a file with FTP" I'm supposed to select UTF-8 as Control Encoding in the job entry configuration dialog.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
