- Subject: Cygwin does not have unicode support however FileZilla displays unicode
Hi I have been confused about a matter between cygwin and the (open)ssh
I am also finding it a bit tricky in wording this in the best way possible.
Essentially I am trying to figure out why FileZilla is able to display
unicode characters when connected to the SSHd server setup using cygwin.
Please bear with me with this.
I believe everything works when ?FileZilla connects to the SSHd server is
because it does not go through cygwin's BASH (which doesnt support unicode),
instead it communicates directly to OpenSSH's (which does support Unicode).
I believe that is why Unicode works on FileZilla but not in Putty.
Please let me know if this is all wrong.
Thanks in advance
