#9023 closed enhancement (fixed)

Normalize filename when copying files with illegal Windows characters

For example a Linux filename could be something like: ifcfg-eth0:0

...which in Linux is legal.

When I use Cyberduck to copy this file to Windows, I think the filename in Windows should be URL encoded, like this:


...since the ":" is illegal in a Windows filename.

The reverse should also be done -- i.e. when copying from Windows to SWIFT, the filename should be URL decoded.

This, for example, is how WinSCP copes with the same issue when FTP-ing files around different systems.

Thanks very much for you consideration, Olivier Withoff, Demo Center Team, Citrix Systems.
